I have a place in TN... but my residence is in rural FL only on a few acres now. I'm not a half back, originally from NM. Makes me a unicorn wet back, kinda sorta.

Most folks who moved to Florida know very little about anything but the coast line, and the interstate corridors of I-95, I-75 and I-4... I-10 to a lesser degree. Once you get inland a bit it's very rural, farming and cattle country.


We have a great, and beautiful state with many outdoor wonders. Visit the springs and see.

What was $5K in taxes for me last year will be $498 in taxes for me this year.
Same home value...TX vs SC.

SC is very tax friendly for retired folks.
