If you've been considering where to spend your "golden years" when you retire, you might want to consider staying put right here in Central Texas.

According to the upcoming January-February Issue of Where To Retire Magazine, Killeen has been named one of the "tax friendliest cities for retirees" in America making it an ideal destination for retirees.

The magazine says they evaluated taxes on income, property, sales, discounts for seniors, and more factors that are the wish lists of soon to be retired seniors and found that Killeen is high in a lot of those factors.

7 other cities made the list including Clearwater, Florida, Clemson, South Carolina; Elko, Nevada; Houma, Louisiana; Natchez, Mississippi; Oak Ridge, Tennessee; and Valdosta, Georgia.

You might want to rethink going to the island and stay here to save your money, your choice!
