You have just hit the big jackpot. You take home $50 million after taxes are fully paid. What U.S state(or another country) do you choose to reside in and give reasons why ? State of intoxication/confusion and deliriousness are not options.Big Smile

        I think I might have a condo in FL someplace for federal tax purposes( no state income tax,airports are widely spread throughout the state, roads are good, sales tax is relatively good)
        Build a main House in Alaska/Minnesota(hunting and fishing) as the secondary home and have a cabin in the mountains of N.H./Tenn with a doomsday bunker(just for S&G)

          Well I'd never leave the U.S for residency in another country, but I'd love to live in San Diego or Las Vegas, plus I think in either of those place i could find a decent home for around 2 mil. I'd love to take a couple cruises a year and maybe stay in some exotic places around the world a couple times a year, but leave this country? Heck no

                When you have a lot of money even places that snow a lot like Syracuse NY or St Paul MN feel like heaven. When you have no money even places with heavenly weather of Mexico feels like hell. Money cushions the rough edges. I wouldn't move.

                That money's gone fo ever

                  I like my area, but I'd probably get a new house. If I started having trouble with the locals, I'd probably go to Nevada since there's no state income tax and nobody knows me there.

                        Las Vegas .... not to gamble nescessarily  but I visited there so  many times and I love the atmosphere.. I have family there too.. I like all the shows, plays, food and dance clubes there..  I would make that  my permanent residency.. I think I can easily say bye bye to New York if I win...

                          Nevada is a nice area, but its not all its cracked up to be or so a dear friend has told me

                          but for me anywhar I can find my peace and quiet and a decent set of castle laws

                            I plan to stay where i am at and keep my current home because it has soo many memories attached to it.

                            I would get a condo on the beach though to enjoy throughout the year Yes Nod

                              Once all the kids are out of school, I'd head to Texas with a second home in either Hawaii or New Zealand.
