Texas Senior Living
When most people think of Texas, they think of dry scrub plains and cattle ranches. But that’s not all Texas assisted living has to offer. Texas has miles of Gulf Coast beaches as well as rolling hills and grasslands, forests and mountains, spectacular canyons, and desert terrain. It’s one of the most popular states in the country for retirees—because of its mild weather, affordability, and high quality of life.
With the 7th lowest total tax burden of 50 states, Texas is definitely a tax-friendly place for retirees. There’s no income tax—for retiree income or other types of income—and property taxes were recently lowered. You can get a homestead exemption if you’re age 65 or older as well, and some communities have introduced property tax freezes for older residents.
