Full timing and your primary residence

I know this has probably been covered but we are new to this. We are getting ready to full time and sell our house. How do you establish an address for tax purposes and residency? We are in FL and attend to keep this as our state of residency.

Thank you all
Donna & Kelly

yes many threads on this topic...

but IF already a flo' resident it is a lot easier.

simply keep your voter registration, drivers license, vehicle registrations, health insurance and other basic needs IN florida.

many mail drop/handling services are available which is a COMPLETELY different issue and irrelevant to legal residency.

since florida is a NO personal income tax state that's not an issue,

but IF you choose to spend weeks or months in some other states,

paying personal state income taxes may still be a requirement, even for non residents.

there are very good books on the issues of full timing.

and the escapees club/website/forum has lots of great info on this too.

but each state has residency and tax liability laws, so it's up to YOU to sort those out.

many thread will make it appear easy to skirt residency issues

or magically establish domicile in other states...

it's never as simple as it appears in those threads,

but as a current flo' resident, KEEPING flo' as your legal home base is pretty direct .

maintaining voter registration has become an issue in recent years for full time rv'rs in some states,

IF they don't have a recognized residential address.

IF you have kids or G'kids with stick houses in flo' that is helpful too.

cheers

We do have family here. I guess they can be our primary address and built in mail forwarder, at least until we settle into a routine. We will spend most of the time in fl since we will still be employed here. The office might be another primary address. We will see.

We are also Florida residents and full-timers. We used family's address as we weren't sure how long we'd be full-timing (1+ years now). But I've heard good things about St Brendans Isle RV Mail service based in Green Cove Springs, Florida. There are also electronic mail forwarding services where they scan your mail to you. I haven't looked into it much but I seem to recall it being rather pricey.

Good luck and safe travels!

2air, you covered overview wonderfully. Greetings to Lani too Changing residency to different state not as simple as just moving there. And some states r developing reputation for very aggressive collection measures for "former" residents.

See recent article we compiled with help from folks who escaped from MN. Article is here http://dreamstreamr.wordpress.com/20...-of-residence/
