Tax Benefits of Independent Living in Pensacola

One huge advantage of retiring in Pensacola is that Floridians do not pay income taxes. That includes your Social Security benefits, pensions, IRAs, 401(k)s, and other sources of retirement income you may rely on. In addition to what you’ll save in taxes, Florida generally has cheaper utilities and food prices when compared to other states. It all adds up to more money back in your pocket to save for a rainy day – although don’t count on too many of those in Pensacola!
