Pensacola, FL, has been selected a top retirement destination by Where to Retire, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions. Pensacola is profiled in a feature titled “8 Tax-Friendly Cities” in the January/February 2016 issue, available nationwide on December 15, 2015.
Where to Retire Editor Annette Fuller said these eight cities appeal to retirees for more reasons than just financial perks. “It’s hard to believe that the words ‘tax’ and ‘friendly’ could be used in the same headline, which is why we compiled these eight cities, including Pensacola, that deliver the goods for retirees without heavy taxation. Cultural opportunities, lifelong-learning classes, outdoor fun, entertainment, dining options – or whatever is important to you in retirement – doesn’t have to be sacrificed for lower taxes,” Fuller said.
Each year, 700,000 Americans relocate to new towns to retire. Generally, relocating retirees are healthier, better educated and more affluent than those who choose to not relocate. They bring significant economic benefits to their new states and hometowns. Nationally, two dozen states and hundreds of towns seek to attract retirees as a source of economic development.
