You know all those Florida license plates you see around Westport?
Most of them belong to Westporters with 2nd homes. It’s a good life. But it does come with perils.
Like making sure you don’t spend so much time here, you’d have to pay state income taxes.
As with everything these days, there’s an app for that.
For just $19.99 a year, TaxBird can save you thousands. It tracks your location, showing how many days you’ve spent in each state — and how many days you have left.
You’re automatically notified when you approach a state residency threshold.
That’s an interesting story for those of us — I mean, of you — with 2nd homes.
But there’s an even stronger “06880” connection: Co-founder Jim Simon lives in Westport.
Some of the time.
He became a Florida resident to avoid Connecticut taxes, he tells the Greenwich blog For What It’s Worth.
So the next time you see people in Westport with Florida plates, tell them about TaxBird.
On second thought, don’t.
We need their taxes.
