A paradise for taxes
Florida residents reap many financial benefits. Unlike states in the Northeast, neither Florida nor Naples has a state or individual income tax, so Social Security benefits, pension income and income from an IRA or 401(k) are all untaxed. Florida also has no estate or inheritance tax. And unlike other states, there’s no so-called “death tax,” so loved ones don’t have to worry about paying taxes on the right to transfer a property.
Residents in Naples eat healthy and exercise regularly, and it shows. People in Naples have low levels of depression, stress and anxiety, according to the Gallup findings. The area is particularly appealing to retirees who want to move to an area with warm temperatures year-round.
Need some shopping therapy? Naples is home to outstanding outdoor malls that have a great balance of upscale stores and top-rated restaurants, as well as local farmers markets and small boutiques.
Naples is one of the country’s top golf destinations with more than 80 championship courses in the area. Favorite courses include TPC Treviso Bay, in the heart of Naples, and Pelicans Nest Golf Club in nearby Bonita Springs. If golf isn’t your game, watersports such as fishing, boating and nature-focused activities like hiking are easily available.
The Naples area enjoys a strong public-school system that is balanced by an equally strong number of private and parochial offerings. The area is also home to an accredited liberal arts college, Ave Maria University, which has a variety of cultural and educational offerings that appeal to people of all ages.
