Based upon large centers of Maryland voting population Anthony Brown will probably be Gov. for the next 8 years. I've met him a couple of times, came across as a nice guy. BUT, based upon health care roll out he doesn't have a clue on effective management & will probably be under the increase tax thumb of Miller & Busch in Annapolis. On the other hand we could have Doug (The Robot) Gansler. Watch the way this guy moves in his election commercials Weird!!

MD taxes your pension while PA does not.
Now THAT'S a bummer, as I plan to tap into my retirement at 60. Sigh... Guess I'll look more into north Virginia. Thanks for the info, NBP.

Two of my co-workers retired on May 2nd. Both have already moved out of the State of Maryland. One (a Bel Air native) is in North Carolina, and the other, who was living in MD for work, moved back home to Texas.

moving to a lower cost of living area in retirement is a good idea.

Of course it is. Most people can't afford to do otherwise.

I've been working very hard not to be in that same boat when I retire. Unfortunately, I don't know what the future holds. Hopefully, I'll at least have my house mostly paid off by that time.

I was lucky when I bought my house, I paid it with cash. I am just waiting another 6 months or so then I can leave my job and move after 28 years here in this state. Seen lots of wrong change in this state since I been here and can't wait to move where it's quiet, lower cost of living(my hard earned money will go farther), don't care about schools, lower crime rate, slower pace ( I need this) and close to the beach. At least this is my goal. As another poster said, you don't know what the future holds.

Yeah both co-workers retired May 2nd and departed from Maryland on May 3rd. I had another co-worker transfer to Delaware last March. None of them were or will be replaced. That's about $360K in taxable income that simply evaporated and is no longer subject to taxation by the Comptroller. And that figure doesn't include spousal income.

Lol Maryland one of the worst states to live in really? Two counties Howard County, and Montgomery rank among the richest and safest counties in America. Maryland one of the worst states that seriously is laugh. Clearly Midwest is from the Midwest and doesn't know what he's talking about.

For those of you who continue to whine and complain about how awful Maryland is, please exercise the other part of your 1st amendment rights and assemble yourselves in some red-state hell more to your liking and leave Maryland for those of us who love and/or appreciate the opportunities it offers.
