My taxes have more than doubled west of Boston in the past 10 years. 10% seems like a deal!

In Texas property taxes may not increase more than 10% per 3 years.

After age of 65, school taxes are capped. School taxes are the major part of all property taxes and most counties cap all property taxes.

Our "budgets" can't change by more than 2.5% per year (prop 2 1/2), but that doesn't stop the loopholes from sliding through and the taxes going along for the ride. No caps on anything.

Enjoying the discussion in retirement options in warmer weather. Need to start thinking about it at some point, and appreciate the dialog.

Yeah Mike. It's on our short list, and my current RV was born in Texas! Enjoyed living in the Midwest and in the South for a period of time during my career. Thoroughly enjoyed meeting wonderful folks like Gary Platner at 52F who generously helped me with my transition training. A wonderful place to live, no doubt. (Well, for at least 8-9 months of the year!).

Brian

That isn't correct Mel.

The appraised value can go up as much as they want (mine went up 30% a couple years ago). They can however, only increase your taxable amount by 10% a year. I've never heard of the 10% every three year thing. If you have a reference to that please share. That would save me about $10,000 over the last couple years.

Look at Big South Fork Airpark located at KSCX, Scott County, Tennessee. We are a thru-the-fence airpark on a county run public airport. Several options as to lots, housing, hangars. www.bsfairpark.com will give you a look and contacts for a visit. Good luck with your search.
