We looked at the plotted land today and the view is breathtaking. However, we would like help with jobs in the area, shopping, town sizes and taxes. Would you suggest shopping in Chattanooga vs. the rural GA area? Any other suggestions are appreciated.

Across the Tennessee line, you will find refuge from the state income tax. Sorry to say, but Georgia will stick it to you.

F-
Thanks for your response. I knew about the state income tax but was under the impression that was on earned income only. We are both retired but would like part-time work. If taxed only on earned income, the hit wouldn't be so hurting. What is sales tax in GA? TN gets you with 9% and more depending on the county.

Yes, that's a very good point; if you are over 62, most of your retirement income will be exempt. I'm not familiar with sales taxes in the far northern counties of Georgia. Hopefully someone with up-to-date knowledge of the tax situation in that area will post a reply.
