5 Reasons to Move to New Hampshire

We’ve talked about why you should move to New Hampshire before, but there are even more great reasons to live in New Hampshire. Check out our printable list of reasons you should move to New Hampshire!

The “No Tax” List is Pretty Long

New Hampshire has a lot of “no taxes” on many things. No sales tax. No income tax. No capital gains tax. No inventory tax. No machinery or equipment taxes. These are all great reasons to move to New Hampshire if you’re looking to save a few bucks!

NH Has Some Great Political Advantages

We all know New Hampshire is a “swing state”, but in New Hampshire, there are also some other political benefits. NH has small political districts. Each member of the House of Representatives represents 3,300 people, which may seem like a lot, but in reality is quite small. Legislative and executive branches of government are voted on every two years, ensuring that someone who isn’t working well doesn’t stay in office for a long time. On top of that, New Hampshire’s House of Representatives is pretty large, clocking in at 424 reps! That means lots of people with lots of different opinions representing a lot of other people in the state.

Some Freedoms & Liberties Other States Don’t Have

New Hampshire is the “Live Free or Die” state, and we really take that motto to heart. That’s why we have no laws requiring you to wear a helmet while riding on a motorcycle, no law that requires you wear a seat belt, no law that requires you need a permit or license to carry a concealed firearm, no law that restricts your owning of a knife (except for convicted felons). Some of these items may make you wonder if NH cares about safety, but it’s less about safety and more about individual liberties.

Both Conservative and Progressive At The Same Time

NH is both conservative and progressive at the same time. NH both approved medical marijuana legislation in 2012, but also opted out of setting up a state exchange for the Affordable Care Act. NH was also the first state to adopt same-sex legislation without being challenged. New Hampshire has had its share of legislation that is both left-leaning and right-leaning, giving something to everyone.
