Nevada is a low-tax paradise with no tax on income, social security or retirement exemptions so naturally, it becomes a haven for retirees with limited means. There are no taxes on estate or inheritance either. This state is also a boon for those looking for arid, dry and sunny climates and of course, a bit of gambling on the side. The cost of living is slightly lower than the US average, and settlements are few and far between since most of the state is covered in desolate wilderness – there’s the Mojave Desert in the south and the Great Basin in the North. That said, it is one of the fastest growing states in the US and retirees have been moving in cities like Reno, Henderson, Carson City and Gardnerville. If Nevada sounds just perfect for you to retire in, here the top ten assisted living facilities in it, in random order.
