Pack your bags and head for Alaska if you want to get rid of your student loans.
By moving to a state with no income taxes, you could save close to $2,000 a year — and you can redirect that cash toward your debt repayment, according to an analysis from Student Loan Hero, a personal finance website.
The average state income tax is $1,977, Student Loan Hero found.
That's based on applying the average state income tax rate of 4.05 percent to the average national salary of $49,630. The average college graduate left school with $37,172 in student loan debt, according to Student Loan Hero.
If you were to live in a state that doesn't tax income, you could use the extra cash to make bigger repayments on your loans.
Seven states have no income tax: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington and Wyoming.
Tennessee and New Hampshire also don't tax wage income, but they do place levies on investment income and dividends.
Don't leave town just yet — you'll need a place to land first.
"The biggest factor to consider would be employment," said Elyssa Kirkham, a researcher for the Student Loan Hero study. "You can move to a state with a lower tax rate, but if you're trading down for lower income, be aware of that."
