    I looked for the fine print on the website but didn't see anything about those additional and necessary expenses. These charts don't factor that kinda stuff in. We all know that. All the more reason to be in a hurry to get outta Maryland. I'm hoping to be able to within the next year or two. :fingerscrossed:

    We were hoping to move to either GA, TN, or ID within the next three years. Now it seems more like eight so I can collect my full pension.

    With regard to your pension; from what I understand, Tennessee, doesn't tax it. I'm not clear on all the details. Depending on what your research unveils, you might want to consider moving to TN.

    Idaho is more the "throw caution to the wind" destination. Not sure if it's nothing more than a dream at this point.

    Before you pick Tennessee, take a good look at the property taxes....
