We are fulltimers who are currently Oklahoma residents. We've heard a lot about the Escapees RV Club and the one in S. Dakota. Both of these offer mailboxes and various other options. We have been discussing the possibility of changing our residency to a state that is retiree friendly (cheap taxes). Any advice would be appreciated. :cfire

There are five or so states that do not have state income tax. Some states do not have sales tax. In all cases, you can get mail through UPS or the like where they have a real address not a P/O Box. Camping World has a book called "Full Timing". My choice if I could live anywhere would be to Live in southern Washington State (No state income tax) and cross the Columbia River and shop in Oregon (No sales tax). Get the Full Timers book and note all of the information helpful in making your decision.

P/S Have you joined the USSVI yet?

Arizona has no state income tax. which means no state taxes coming out of your social security.
So are we saying here that if you are traveling around the country get a street address box from UPS in a state that has no state income tax, then have UPS forward your mail to somewhere USA?

Just to clarify that, AZ still taxes other forms of income, such as pensions. Only Social Security and other Federal retirement income is tax free.

Is there a state that doesn't tax all income?

Seven U.S. states currently don't have an income tax: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington and Wyoming.

There's no taxes on social security and pensions in Arizona.
We also have somewhat low property taxes too.

Horsefeathers! There definitely is an income tax on pensions in AZ, depending on the type of pension and how much it pays out (sadly, mine, paid out from an annuity owned by my former employer, is one that does get taxed; I got dinged just under $200 for last year).

Also, much of AZ, the parts worth living in, has higher property taxes than much of the country. I know a lot of retirees who moved out of State for that very reason.

Do your research before you decide on a state. We belong to Escapees; both for the cheaper camping rates and for the mail service. We picked Texas March of 2015 because we were there when our 2003 Ford Pickup died. We purchased a new truck and registered it there to save paying personal property taxes in South Carolina. At the same time we transferred our Open Range to Texas. The issue with Texas is that both vehicles are supposed to be inspected annually. Since we were not there this last March we were still able to "register" without the inspection. The thing is there that this is noted with the DMV and if we get stopped coming into Texas we could get hassled (we are supposed to have it completed within 72 hours of returning to TX!). The other issue with Texas is the proper amount of insurance you have on your vehicle. We have insurance with National General/GMAC thru Good Sam. Even after changing our address and giving them our new Texas Driver's License information they were showing us "insured" in South Carolina! Search Texas and see what happens if you don't have the proper amount of coverage! They can impound both vehicles for up to 90 days, fine you and take your driver's license!

Again, what ever state you consider in order to avoid "state" taxes, pick carefully.

When I checked the state tax on pension incomes in AZ ,9onlycentain pensions were taxed.
State funded pensions and military pensions were not taxed.

Is there any place in Florida that doesn't have alligators?. Maybe car registration is cheaper. My 2 cars and trailer $2000 this month.

We have two vehicles, a boat and trailer, another flat bed trailer and the Fiver, my annual cost is less than $300 a year to license in Florida. My property taxes are under $1100 a year but we have been in the same home for 30 + years.
No state income tax. 6.5% sales tax.
