Moving to Tavares

Plan your move to Tavares between fall and spring, if possible, to avoid moving during the hottest part of the year. Also, summer days are notorious for bringing flash thunderstorms to rain on your moving day parade. Fortunately, Florida has no state income tax, so leaving your old state behind as the new tax year rolls around means you won't have to bother filing state income taxes at all that year. (Unfortunately, Florida is sunny, but it isn't immune to the IRS!) If you're planning to move, gather your financial documents, like IDs, bank statements, tax returns, and more. You'll want to be ready to apply for an apartment when you find one, so don't be caught unprepared! Also, be prepared to put down a deposit to secure your apartment. It's the only way to take it off the market, and you don't want someone to rent you dream home before you!
