Tax Planning Through Change in Domicile
If you are a New Jersey resident, you may or may not know that, in addition to state income taxes, New Jersey is one of a number of states that also impose a state estate tax, as well as a state death or inheritance tax. Recent legislation will repeal the estate tax, effective January 1, 2018, but New Jersey residents will still be subject to the inheritance tax, imposed on siblings, nieces and nephews of a decedent (spouses and children are exempt).
The state of Florida, on the other hand, currently has no state income tax and not state death/inheritance tax. Consequently, if you are a New Jersey resident and you want to reduce your potential tax liability, becoming a resident of Florida can help you do that. But it's not an easy process.Read More
