What’s wrong with living in California?

 The traffic, environmental impact, taxes, and sprawl are all reasons to escape the Golden State. More and more people are trying to escape California. Some are going south in pursuit of sunshine and temperatures that don’t make living in Los Angeles next to impossible. For others, Arizona’s great year-round climate and low taxes make the state a better option. But for many Californians, in addition to the weather, is freedom from an overpowering local government that restricts freedoms, forces high taxes and cost of living.

Not only are Californians moving to Arizona, but many companies from around the country are moving to Arizona as well for their business-friendly tax laws; all of this creates a great place to live, but also with companies moving to Arizona, a lot of new jobs as well, which makes Arizona an attractive place to work too!

What are the benefits of moving to Arizona?

Low cost of living, low taxes, no natural disasters, and a very clean and diverse city.  Most people agree that California has some of the highest state taxes in the country. California residents pay more than five percent in state taxes on top of the federal government’s 10 percent. That’s a significant annual savings for those living in Arizona. The sales tax in Arizona is 5.5 percent less than in California.  Arizona’s annual property taxes are sometimes less per year than some residents in other big cities pay monthly.
