Georgia, a Great State for Retirees
Is Georgia on your mind? This incredible state is a gem in the southeast and an excellent place to live for all walks of life. For residents of Soleil Laurel Canyon, there are several reasons why Georgia was where they decided to spend their retirement.
The bucolic landscape of the North Georgia Mountains surrounds this beautiful community, providing residents with a fresh dose of mountain air and scenic views. The jam-packed events calendar invites residents to gather and enjoy all that the resort life has to offer on a daily basis, while the community’s amenities are in use year-round. The energy around Soleil is contagious and it motivates active adults from around the country to come and relish in all that the great state of Georgia and premier 55-plus living have to offer.
Several things have to be considered when relocating to an active adult community. On top of a comfortable living environment, retirees have to thank about health care, location and overall convenience when deciding their best option for retirement. Luckily, the Peach State provides one of the best reasons of all to relocate to Georgia: low taxes! According to Kiplinger, Georgia is one of the top ten most tax-friendly states for retirees in the country. Here are some of the tax breaks that retirees benefit from when living in the great state of Georgia:
- The state sales tax is 4 percent.
- The income tax range is a low of 1 percent to a high of 6 percent.
- Social security benefits are tax exempt.
- Residents 65 and older may qualify for additional property tax reductions along with the already in place homestead exemption for full-time Georgia residents.
