How much you will pay in taxes in retirement depends a lot on where you live.
New research from personal finance website GOBankingRates compiles data on sales, property and income taxes, as well as whether Social Security benefits are taxed, to identify the states where retirees face the smallest and biggest bills.
One thing that the states that landed at the top of the list have in common: no state taxes on Social Security benefits and mostly low, if any, income taxes.
"If you don't have income tax and you don't tax Social Security, you're going to be a great destination for retirees, even if you didn't make the top five," said Andrew DePietro, research and data analyst at GOBankingRates.
While Florida came in seventh, it is number one among the most populous states, DePietro noted.
"It's definitely going to stay a haven for retirees," DePietro said. "I don't really see that changing."
States that had high taxes in any of the categories GOBankingRates evaluated were pushed farther down the list.
"You don't have to be the worst tax in each category, but if they aggregate together, that's how you get a very bad ranking," DePietro said.
