Alaska Senior Housing
When picturing the ideal retirement community, most people don’t think of a place in Alaska. After all, it is the coldest state—with winter temperatures often well below zero. But when you consider that it has no income or sales taxes at all thanks to its oil revenues, suddenly Alaska doesn’t look so bad. Even better, Alaska’s Permanent Fund divides 25% of all oil and natural gas development revenue among its citizens—so you could qualify to earn a few hundred or maybe a few thousand dollars extra every year.
The winters might be cold, but the summer is absolutely stunning—and mild. It’s perfect for those who want to escape hot summers. And in some areas toward the southern end of the state—such as Juneau—have a slightly more moderate climate than what you’ll find in the interior, more comparable to Seattle than to the Arctic Circle.
