Yee-haw! Welcome to Texas! These days, with the entire country experiencing a lagging economy, business goes on almost as usual in Texas. With an economy that rivals the size of many of the nations in the world, you may find yourself relocating to Texas. Or, with so many huge cities such as Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, Lubbock and El Paso, maybe you are planning to travel to Texas in the near future. So, what can you expect when you get there?
First of all, you are sure to encounter a lot of Texas pride. The only of the 50 states allowed to secede from the Union at any time also offers housing prices lower than in any other state besides Oklahoma. Additionally, Texas' state tax burdens rank among the lowest in the nation, and the state is only one of six in the nation that does not make residents pay income tax. And, there are a wide variety of job opportunities in Texas, from positions in energy or technology to agriculture or commerce. There are 58 Fortune 500 companies based in Texas; the state is now home to more of them than New York. And while you may sweat to death in the summer, it is rare to see more than a few snowflakes in most parts of Texas.
