6. Taxes / Cost of Living...
There is... NO STATE INCOME TAX... in Florida.
Property Taxes are capped on all homesteads. If your primary residence is in Florida, you can Homestead the residence
and the assessed value will be capped at 3% per year, even if your assessed value exceeds that amount.
In many ways, Florida’s cost of living is below that of other states with similar economic growth and in-migration rates.
For example, the state’s homeownership rate currently stands at about 70 percent, well above the national average. And,
with data from the Florida Association of Realtors showing that $187,800 was the statewide median price for an existing
home at year-end 2008, housing prices compare well to other similar states.
Those seeking to move a business or start a new business in Southwest Florida enjoy the many financial benefits of
Florida’s tax laws.
