Residency issues for retirees
Abstract: With 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 each day, some may decide to move to another state for a variety of reasons. If the retiree’s move is intended to be permanent, it is important that legal domicile be established in the new state. If not, the retiree may be subject to income tax as a resident of both the old and new states, and both states may claim jurisdiction over the retiree’s estate. This article lists the steps that tend to establish domicile in a new state.
