Are you on the verge of retirement, or perhaps just a few more years away but you’re ready to start making some retirement plans? There are many things to consider when it comes time to retire, not the least of which where you choose to call home. For many people, the choice is easy; they just stay put where they’ve always called home. However, there are a lot of factors that go into this choice including children, grandchildren and of course taxes.

Speaking of taxes, if saving money is one of your top priorities, or the top priority, then you might want to consider closely where you live after you clock out for the last time. According to a report from Kiplinger you may want to avoid these 15 states if you want to save money and avoid more retirement expenses. These locations are not necessarily a bad place to live, but their tax and health care bills lack something to be desired, which is never easy for retirees.
