TOP REASONS TO MOVE TO TEXAS
• Texas is one of only seven states that has no personal income tax.1
Most of taxes in Texas are sales taxes and taxes on businesses and specific industries. The state does have a property tax, but it's collected by cities, counties, and school districts, not by the state, and it can only be used for local needs.
• Texas has no individual income tax, but it does levy a franchise tax of .475% on some wholesalers and retail businesses as of 2020. The rate increases to .95% for other non-exempt businesses. Also called a "privilege tax," this is a type of income tax based on total business revenues exceeding $1.18 million
• Inheritance and estate taxes are often grouped under the label "death taxes." Texas repealed its inheritance tax on Sept. 15, 2015. There's no estate tax in Texas, either, although estates valued at more than $11.58 million can be taxed at the federal level as of 2020
• The state's gas tax has been set at 20 cents a gallon on diesel and unleaded fuels since 1991. This works out to just less than $10 a month for the average driver.

For the second year in a row, Austin, Texas has earned its place as the metro area containing one million people or more with the no. 1 job market in 2019, according to a ranked list created by the Wall Street Journal and Moody’s Analytics.
The list was compiled by analyzing the labor market in 381 metro areas where each metro was ranked based on unemployment rate, labor-force participation rate, job growth, labor-force growth and wage growth. Those metrics were then averaged in order to determine the best labor markets.
The Nashville, Tennessee, metro area came in second on the list while the Denver, Colorado metro are came in third. Seattle, Washington, earned the fourth place spot and the San Francisco, California and Salt Lake City, Utah metro areas tied for fifth place.
The top two metro areas, renowned for their music scenes, earned their rankings in large part due to low unemployment rates. In Austin’s case, it also experienced high wage growth in 2019, and Nashville benefited from high labor-force growth

WHAT OUR CLIENTS THINK
Wow, what can I say! Most attentive realtor I've ever worked with! He read between the lines and brought me properties to view that fit my needs better than I expected! Really knows his business!
- Angel S.
He's the Man!.. cool guy, he was super patience with us and keep us up to date with any openings. Very personable as well. He was able to get us the apt i wanted thru his relationship with the leasing staff. the apt wasn't even on the market yet. he was a relief from our last lady, she was pressuring me to get me to sign a longer lease to up her commission..She literally told me that was the reason..so im glad i found Jonny and I honestly never fill these out but they guy really deserves it.
- Fred and Denise G.
I would highly recommend Jonny Phelps' services. He was extremely knowledgeable in various areas of his business. From discussing architecture and design, while providing various ideas, to also providing me with information regarding the area I was interested in. He was also able to locate and facilitate a deal with a lender and made sure to communicate with me and walk me through the whole process. He helped alleviate any stress that comes with purchasing a home. Overall I am very pleased with the assistance I was provided. Jonny definitely made this a very enjoyable experience.
