When comparing the different types of taxes in New York and in Florida, notable differences can be observed.

income taxes

This is the main tax benefit of the state of Florida, those who reside in it are not required to pay state income tax, they only pay federal rates.

For example, a Floridian with a home valued at $194.000 will be required to pay real estate taxes of $1.897. While someone in New York with a home of the same value will have to pay $3.246 in taxes.

death taxes

New York has an inheritance tax, which means that when one of its residents dies, the property has to pay federal and state taxes.

In New York, inheritance tax rates vary between 3.06% and 16%. It has an exclusion amount located at $5.74 million.

Sales taxes

This is the only rate that is lower in New York than Florida, as the total state sales and excise taxes are lower.
