As Florida estate planning attorneys, we are frequently asked by clients how to become Florida residents. The good news is if you declare yourself to be a Florida resident, then Florida will be happy to have you and not object. The bad news is if the state you are leaving collects a state income tax or state estate tax, then specific steps need to be taken to terminate your "domicile" or "resident status" in that state and confirm your change of residence to Florida. Learn about this and other nuances of becoming a Floridian with this helpful checklist created by top estate attorneys from the Morris Law Group.
