Question, is there any benefit to doing this sooner rather than later?

Many people benefit financially from moving to a state with no state income tax. If this is the case, you want to do all the things that can prove FL residency ASAP in case your previous state asks for proof of when you moved.

You want to be able to show that you are domiciled in FL. That does not just mean "buying a house in another state". It involves doing things that prove you consider that state to be your permanent, legal home (i.e. getting a FL license, registering your cars, registering to vote, etc.)

We closed on our current house last year on Oct. 31 and went straight to the DMV. It was so much easier to say that we were PA residents for 10 months and FL residents for two when filing our taxes. PA income tax isn't bad, comparatively speaking, but we still saved a chunk of change by not giving them money for Nov. and Dec.

Hi all,

We purchased an Iris home in Village of Southern Oaks, spitting distance from the food trucks and the pitch & putt course. Many of the homes there are just getting ready to be occupied, with another 36+ lots sold and ready to be built. We close at the end of September.

We've been reading all the threads here for months. We arrived this past Thursday, looked at almost 50 homes since, and signed a contract to purchase on Sunday.

We will be moving from Oregon, and start the domicile change right after we close. We will eventually sell our Oregon home, but that will take a while.

Thanks to everyone here for the tips of what to expect, and what it takes to get the home "move-in" ready.

Mike
