What kinds of things should an out-of-stater be careful about or be aware of when moving into the state, in order to avoid any unpleasant surprises? An example: when I moved briefly into NY from California many years ago, I was shocked to learn that if your car insurance lapses you must physically mail your license plates to Albany. I thought that was an absolutely insane, control-freak type law, and it's something I never would have been able to imagine.



Are there any other things an immigrant to the State should watch out for?

First, bring your own lube, because it’s painful to be reamed by Cuomo without it.

Cuomo is not business friendly. He hates western NY big time and we hate him.

All of the above ^^^ including:

Insanely high property taxes. We paid almost $12,000 a year for an 1100 sq. ft. 3bdr 1bth home in the semi run down City of Peekskill and that was over 10 years ago when we left. If you rent keep in mind that those taxes are passed on down to the tenants.

Cuomo, Cuomo, Cuomo, and the fact that New York has one of if not thee most corrupt legislatures in the country. New York is one of the leading states for out migration. If you buy a home you may have difficulty trying to sell it later on. It took us over 3 years to sell our old home.

Hostility to anyone who doesn't think like Cuomo. After passing New York's "Safe Act" an oppressive gun control law. He even stated that people that do not think like him are not welcome in New York.

New York City and it's metro area rule the state with an iron fist. It's politicians have total contempt and have ostracized those who live upstate.

Miserable winter's and hot humid summer's.

This should help in regards to some taxation aspects: https://www.retirementliving.com/tax...yoming#NEWYORK

https://smartasset.com/taxes/new-yor...tax-calculator
https://www.tax.ny.gov/research/prop.../resmedian.htm
Exemptions info: https://www.tax.ny.gov/pit/property/exemption/index.htm


Information on both sites are baselines, as they can vary by and within a county. I would go to the specific county you are interested in for more specific information.

Where would you be coming from? Where are you looking within the state? What are some other things you are looking for in terms of a neighborhood, housing, transportation, education, etc.? Answering those questions would help offer insight to what YOU are looking for. I say that because some things that bother some may not bother you and vice versa. This really goes for any state.

The land of “No”

EVERYTHING is regulated and taxed or has fees.
Permits for everything. If you want to, you can’t.
If you you think you can, don’t.
