Changed Domicile

We did it. Changed domicile to South Dakota. Very happy we did. No state tax on our earned income or SS. If that wasn't enough - the same insurance coverage for our AS and our 2 pickups cost 1/3 what we paid in Arkansas. Dougherty & Associates( danjohn@doughertyassoc.net) shopped and compared different companies for us to get the best coverage at the best price. For us ,using a different company for the vehicles and another for the AS fulltimers coverage worked out better, Using Alternative Resources Mail Forwarding(Alternative Resources) in Sioux Falls, SD. They were highly recommended at several rving sites. They handled the vehicle registration for us also, which made everything go really smooth.The licensing fees in SD are extremely low. The fees for a class A CDL is also very low. This is making a huge difference for us. Just thought I'd post this for other fulltimers considering a change in domicile. 'shaker

Thanks for sharing this

A buddy is thinking of doing the same thing.
He is fed up with the taxes, fees and erosion of freedom in the northeast.
South Dakota has some mighty fine people there and I hear real estate is reasonable.
Retired people or travelers are an asset that some states want.
Good luck.

If you don't mind (I have a "B" CDL), how much does a CDL cost there?

Cdl Cost

$15 for 5 yrs for the Class A. Class B should be lower. Also, if the "B" requires a physical,as does an "A",be sure and take a current copy of your medical card. They won't issue a CDL without one. Also, Fed. DOT is requiring a physical addy for the Class A (don't know about Class B). Alternative Resources can put individuals in touch with an rv park that will lease you their physical address for $100/yr to meet this federal requirement. Mail forwarding services no longer meet this requirement. 'shaker
