We took advantage of a previously scheduled trip to Austin, TX, to establish residency in Texas. Why? In short, tax savings. We'll likely earn at least some income while we're away, mostly (perhaps all) from companies based in the states. We'll have to pay Federal income tax in 2015, but this switch from AZ to TX will lessen that financial burden.
(However, I shall continue to use the hashtag #TexasSucks during college football season. #boomer.)
We'll hang out a few days here in Hill Country before we head back to AZ to complete our preparation for the craziness we're about to get into. Oh, and it looks like Denmark won't be our first trip, but our second. France, anyone? More on that as we finalize the details.
Oh, and welcome to the first blog post!
