I once told my CPA, you think I am dumb enough to pay you $500 in accounting costs to save $300 on my taxes?
I suggest you really put a pencil to it. Add real estate sales costs, new home purchase trip costs, moving costs, set up costs etc etc etc.
So wow, you will save $1000/yr, but spend $12000 to do it and totally disrupt your life in your golden years. Fuzzy thinking. All states have there good and bad, don't over react.
