Here are a few facts which might be useful to a retiree. There's
no sales tax on the Oregon side of the river, but property taxes in HR
are pretty high. There's no state income tax on the Washington side
of the river, but you do have to claim you spend 51% of your residency
in the state.



I lived in 2 states for a while, one of which was Washington and never encountered a rule about 51% being in-state. The state in which you are a resident is determined separately by each of the states that you "live" and could possibly pay taxes, so you could be considered to be a resident (but perhaps not domiciled, as used by the IRS) in both states at the same time! Or conversely, by neither state! My other state was Hawaii, and it has a totally different view on whether I am a resident there than does Washington State. For WA state, I met the definition of "resident" as defined here:

Currently WA state is pretty loosey-goosey about who is a resident, but that will no doubt change if they impose an income tax.

That's timely...Got a letter from the Utah State Tax Commission just today! We've been bopping back and forth between Hawaii & Utah. Seems Utah wants to claim me as a full time resident for income tax purposes.
