I want to be able...
I want to be able to stop filing tax returns. What are my options. I currently am 40 and live off an inheritance. I only make $8000 per year in interest income from a mortgage I hold. I live in Pennsylvania. What are my options to stop filing Fed and State. Can I move to a more tax friendly state? I will never make more that $8000 per year in income.Also I am doing my returns. Am I legally obligated to use itemized over standard deductions if the itemized deduction reduces my tax bill? I would prefer standard because it is less complicated to double-check my calculations. The money saved in taxes is not worth the complexity.

If you are a PA resident, nonresident or a part-year PA resident, you must file a PA tax return if:

If the house you hold a mortgage on is in PA then moving will not change your filing requirement because the interest is PA sourced.
