We use the 1992 to 2000 waves of HRS and town-level fiscal data from the Census of Governments, to examine whether moves by households near retirement age are motivated by local fiscal policy. The data show some evidence that movers lower their fiscal burden. Households that move across states the first time after their children have reached adulthood reduce their property tax liability by an average of $115. However, there is a great deal of heterogeneity across different types of movers. It is clear that while fiscal policy may factor into the move decision, it is just one of many variables upon which location choice by retirees is based.
