Lifestyle and Career Benefits of Moving to Texas
Texas as a whole and the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area are being talked about more and more nationwide—drawing an influx of new residents as well as new businesses to the Lone Star State. In fact, Texas was the fastest-growing state in the nation in 2020 and the fifth in 2021. While there’s plenty of attractions and entertainment that entice people to make the move, future careers and lifestyle are one of the top considerations as well. Sandlin Homes has gathered some information to showcase the career and lifestyle benefits and opportunities that come with moving to Texas.
Business is booming
Texas offers a low tax burden, as well as comprehensive incentive and financing options, for companies locating to or expanding in the state. Known as The Nation’s Top Corporate Tax Environment, owning a business in Texas can save you thousands—or millions—of dollars compared to other popular business epicenters across the country.
Even if you’re not a business owner, the workforce also reaps the benefits of the tax breaks and incentives their employers receive. Without corporate or personal income taxes, companies in Texas are able to invest more into their growing workforce, improve facilities and boost the bottom line.
Salaries go further
Businesses aren’t the only ones benefiting from tax breaks in Texas—it’s widely known that Texas is one of nine states in the country without income tax. While property taxes in the state do rank rather high in comparison to the rest of the U.S., having no income tax also means Social Security and all other forms of retirement income are tax-free as well—likely offsetting that cost. This means your salary can go even further in Texas.
Elevate your lifestyle in DFW
If you’re moving from a bustling metropolitan and hoping for a similar atmosphere in your new city, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with what Texas has to offer. Those who don’t live here might envision cowboy boots, cattle ranches and dirt roads—but many areas of the state, particularly the Dallas-Fort Worth area, will give other big cities a run for their money. With millions of residents in the greater DFW area, booming economies and endless options for employment, your career and lifestyle will only improve living in Texas.
