Texas Tops List of the Best States to Make a Living in 2015

texas-livingAmericans across the nation are always on the hunt for an amazing and plentiful life for their family. This generally means good jobs, a beautiful home and a great place to live. If you’ve been looking for the perfect place for yourself and loved ones, MoneyRates.com, a personal finance site, may just sway you to make the jump over to the Lone Star State. The site’s recently released list of Best States to Make a Living in 2015 has seen Texas take the top position.

We’re Number One

The list’s requirements for each state are simple. They must offer healthy wages, manageable taxes, a low cost of living and safe working conditions. To produce the list, the authors garnered data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, The Council for Community and Economic Research, and the Tax Foundation, a nonpartisan tax research group.

Texas moved to first place after ranking second behind Washington State in last year’s list.  Our state drew benefit from its lower-than-average cost of living, which coincidentally helped increase the average wage to slightly above average. Texas further cemented its first place position due to its low levels of workplace incidents along with not having an income tax. The top ten list is as follows:

  • Texas
  • Washington
  • Wyoming
  • Virginia
  • Illinois
  • Michigan
  • Colorado
  • Ohio
  • Delaware
  • Utah
