Getting permanent residency in Florida

Every year, more than 50,000 people come into Florida from New York for a number of reasons. Some include permanent moves, vacations or living in the area for a couple months at a time. Unfortunately, to the state of New York or most other states, you represent lost revenue when you leave the state, so chances are New York will audit you, and in some cases you need to prove that you are a Florida resident.

Most people think that owning property in Florida will be enough proof of residency but in the end, time will be of most value. One would have had to spend 183 days in Florida in order to be considered. If you spend most of your time in New York, they will automatically consider you a New Yorker.

There are other things you can do to lower your chances of audit and increase your chances at permanent residency in Florida. This includes obtaining a Florida residency card, making sure your permanent address to the bank is a Florida address, using a Florida bank, have medical records transferred to a Florida physician and consulting a Florida lawyer for your estate planning documents to ensure everything fits with Florida law.
