At a time when federal tax reform has escalated the cost of living in the states of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Illinois, as well as a number of other states, residents continue to weigh their options – including whether to establish residency in Florida. As a result, revenue-starved states are intensifying their scrutiny of individuals and families attempting to change their residency status during a mass migration for tax purposes.

Why: In the wake of exorbitant tax burdens being imposed by many states, in conjunction with the ability to work from remote locations easier than ever before, many high-net-worth individuals and families are now considering making a move to change their place of domicile. While Florida is the top choice for changing residency, the six other income-tax-free states include Wyoming, Washington, Texas, South Dakota, Nevada and Alaska.
Issues to be addressed include:
- Best practices for establishing Florida residency in the current enforcement climate
- Understanding domicile vs. statutory residency vs. allocation of income
- How a “change of residence income tax return” should be correctly prepared
- Planning for the state tax examination
- Overview of recent cases and rulings
- Common mistakes in estate planning
- What to do and not do in establishing Florida residency
