Posted below is a link to our updated guide to Florida residency. The guide is a starting point for persons considering becoming Florida residents, whether for tax planning, asset protection, or other reasons. (I hear the weather isn’t bad.)
If Florida residency is motivated by tax planning or other legal factors, it is important to not only convince Florida to accept you as a resident, but also to convince your former home state to recognize your status as a Florida resident. The level of difficulty varies widely amongst the states. We recommend coordination between tax advisors in both Florida and your former state of residence.
We hope you find the guide useful. Here is the link: http://www.williamsparker.com/DigitalPublications/relocationguide/index.html.
