If shrinking your tax liability is high on your list of priorities, a few states stand out. The winners in the list below either have no state income tax, no tax on retirement income, or a substantial discount on the taxes levied on retirement income. But that’s just the start.

While several additional states have no state income tax, the states that made our list also have favorable sales, property, inheritance, and estate taxes.

  • Alaska
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Mississippi
  • Nevada
  • South Dakota
  • Wyoming

If those seven locations aren’t ideal, consider the next tier of tax-friendly states. Tax benefits aren’t quite as high as those above, but they do stand out in one specific category: no taxes on social security income.

That’s not to say they don’t make up for it in other areas, however. Washington State, for example, has no state income tax, but does have a 6.5% state sales tax. Still, it’s always beneficial to avoid income tax when possible.

  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • Colorado
  • Delaware
  • Idaho
  • Illinois
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Michigan
  • New Hampshire
  • Oklahoma
  • Pennsylvania
  • South Carolina
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Virginia
  • Washington
  • West Virginia
