Yes. No state income tax, lower housing costs than the big paying states, lower RE taxes than many states, just to name a few.

It certainly was the case for us.

I said "just to name a few". Reading comprehension issue?

I also have provided our own personal experience, which was a sizable net gain. Again, YMMV.

Always a pissing match over salaries. The are LOWER in Fl for most occupations compared to a lot of states, but not all. Who really cares?

Most posters here claim to be paying twice and triple what I pay for car insurance.
Most posters here claims to pay triple what I pay for HOI.

Do something about it.

There are three questions in life that has to be a YES answer.

Are you happy where you live?"
It really matters because if you are not happy with where you live you will be miserable.

Are you happy with the kind of work you do?
If you dont like what you do for a living you will be miserable. You will never succeed in a job you dont like.

Are you happy with yourself?
Everyone needs to be happy with themselves otherwise life is miserable.

How much one earns or how big their house is or how new their car is are irrelevant in being happy.


I think a few of you answer "no" to the 3 questions.

For someone that likes "truth and reason" you sure get upset when the truths get put infornt of your face.

Yeah? Who's getting upset? It is what it is.

Hillsborough County QuickFacts from the US Census Bureau


Hillsborough:
Per capita money income in past 12 months (2012 dollars) $26,947

Pasco:
Per capita money income in past 12 months (2012 dollars), 2008-2012 $23,895


Hernando:
Per capita money income in past 12 months (2012 dollars), 2008-2012 $21,632

If you dont like the numbers and the odds of your being on the low end dont live in FL.

$8.00 is what they wanted to start my x wife at at a hospital in Clearwater. She was making $13.00 plus full paid medical in Detroit. So you see the differance between pay in Detroit compared to Florida. And the Clearwater job wanted her to pay half of the lousy medical plan they offerd. Her medical in Detroit was $5 office visits up to $25 perscription depending if it was a tier1 or tier 2 ot tier 3 drug. But all was waved when she got them filled at the hospital pharmcey. She said thanks but no thanks to the Clearwater job, in fact she laughed in the hr persons face in Clearwater and told them they were a bunch of cheap asses.
