We had to run to Lowe’s in Carthage this morning. We were driving along . . when we go to Carthage, we go the back way and it really is pretty. We had been talking about some new legislation in MO which has passed but is waiting for the Governor to sign it. One is that property taxes for those over 65 would be frozen and the other is that they will no longer charge state income tax on social security income. One of the main reasons Vince didn’t want to move from Texas was because no state income tax. I finally convinced him that keeping an apartment in MO and my trips back and forth, when weighed against state income tax, I’d prefer to pay the state income tax.
We were talking about that and Vince said “Moving back to Missouri wasn’t so bad!” I said “It almost sounds like you’re saying my idea was a good one, I think you’re saying I was right!”
He assured me that was NOT what he was saying. 🙂
It’s ok. We’re in Missouri. We’re both happy here. That’s what matters.
Finding a place you can both be happy is the ultimate in happiness. No state tax here is one reason I don’t want to move back to Arizona, but we’ll see what happens in a couple more years.
I understand. It hope it all works out for all of y’all.
