    If there is a heaven on earth, many would say it is our charming, historical town of Lewes, Delaware. Plenty of people who have vacationed here over the years have eventually considered moving to Lewes permanently. Living in Sussex County, Delaware has a multitude of benefits. The location of our historic town along the picturesque shoreline, coupled with the tax benefits of moving to Delaware, cannot be overstated.

    When you visit Lewes, Delaware for a seaside retreat, you are likely too distracted by the scenery to think about something as dull as taxes; however, once you learn that Delaware is one of the most tax friendly states in the country, you may begin to wonder what it would be like to relocate to the shore and save money on taxes.

    Other tax benefits include:

    • No sales tax
    • No state tax on social security income

    • School tax credits for seniors
    • Up to $12,500 of retirement income is exempt for persons over age 60
