The Gardens Team is Ready For The Hershey RV Show

The Gardens RV Village is sending the ‘A-team’ to the Hershey RV Supershow! We’re very excited because we always, always (Lord willing) find new, fun neighbors-to-be at this event. So wish us luck, everyone. This year, we have a huge outdoor booth consisting of five (5!) tents. We’ll be hosting an air-conditioned video booth in one of the tents, so that will be exciting. Tim Wilson will host seminars on “RV Retirement Community Living” in the Locker Room (cool!) each day. Wednesday through Saturday, they’ll be held from 6:30-7:30 pm and on Sunday, from 9:30-10:30 am. He will be sharing the in’s and out’s of living in a place like the Gardens and there will be Q&A sessions at each event. So please add this to your calendar if you’re in Hershey…. Come and bring your questions! Also, don’t forget if you are talking about the Hershey show on social media, tag it with #HersheyRVShow If you are talking about The Gardens, tag our name | #GardensRV | #GardensRVVillage |

Seminar and Video: Taxes, Landscaping, and More

As you have read previously, The Gardens RV Village traveled to Springfield, Massachusetts to inform RVers at the FMCA 94th International Convention of our RV Community on top of the Cumberland Plateau. You can check for more of our videos here. In this segment, Tim talks about how favorable the taxes are for retirees in Tennessee.

RetireTennessee.org states, “In 2015, CNBC ranked Tennessee #2 in the country for its cost of living. Our Cost of Living Index is 9.7% below the national average.” If you are wondering about property taxes, Tennessee has no state property tax. Sales tax is 5% on food and 7% on all other tangible personal property. However, there is no sales tax on prescription drugs. There is no state personal income tax in Tennessee. Although, TN has the Hall Income Tax. If you are concerned, talk to your financial advisors. Local taxes are set by local governments. Finally, retirees can nurture their nest egg by relocating to a state with lower taxes. Tennessee has a perk for retirees: dividends and interest are the only form of income that TN taxes. For further information, you can check this link.

Later in the video, landscaping is discussed. The homeowner provides their own landscaping. There are several options that they can choose from. If you are interested in learning more about the options, you can contact us by email or phone.
