Why stay tied to a high-tax state when you travel full-time?

If you’re a full-time RVer, a traveling medical professional, belong to an escapees club, a digital nomad, or a retiree without a consistent physical address, you’ll inevitably need a way to receive your mail and a state to establish residency in.

First, where will you have your mail sent? Look no further than our secure and economical virtual mailbox service. Let us manage your mail and save you time and money. 

Second, where will you pay your state taxes? While it might seem obvious to pay taxes in the state where you were living before you became location-independent — and ask a friend or neighbor to be the steward of your mail — the solution that can save you money in taxes is right under your nose: become a South Dakota resident.
