States Without Income Taxes – Additional Considerations
If you live in a state without individual income taxes, you won’t need to pay taxes on your wages or income from Social Security, pensions, or retirement plans, such as 401(k)s or an IRA. However, taxpayers in these states are still subject to other types of taxes, including local taxes or sales taxes.
