Retired Folk in South Carolina...

Market Watch, The Wall Street Journal. 1/11/2014: "If the retired folks in South Carolina seem relaxed, it may be because they’re enjoying more low-key lifestyle, and less congestion, then they would little further south among their brethren in Florida. While a growing number of people have been flocking to the state for its mild winters and a slower pace, the state remains almost an “undiscovered gem,” says Laura Scharr-Bykowsky, a principal at Ascend Financial Planning in Coluimbiaa, SC. What's more, the state offers low taxes including the real estate tax."

Tax Friendly Myrtle Beach!

Kiplinger lists SC among tax- riendly states for retirees:
Sept. 7 2012

Retire to Myrtle Beach: Kiplinger magazinehas listed South Carolina in the 10 most tax-friendly states for retirees in the 2016 iasssue.

“The state tax does not tax Social Security, and it provides a generous retirement - income deduction when calculating state income tax. State Tax is reasonable and property taxes are very low. Taxes are based on 4% of the market value of the home, and senior homeowners qualify for a homestead exemption,"  Kiplinger said in summarizing South Carolina's policies for people 65 years of age. .

Some other points noted by Kiplinger include:
People 65 and over may deduct $10,000 in qualifying retirement income, including public employee retirement plans, Keogh plans, IRA distribution and retirement.

People 65 and over can take a Senior Deduction of  $15,000, for single filers, or $30,000, for married couples filing jointly. However, the 15,000 deduction must be offset by the amount taken with the retirement-income deduction.  Retired Military personnel 65 and ol;der can deduct up to $10,000 of military retirement benefits.
