What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sulphur

  • The City of Sulphur doesn't impose income taxes, but residents must pay Louisiana's state retirement taxes. Rates range from 1.85% to 4.25%. Seniors can lower their tax bills by taking advantage of several deductions; residents can fully deduct Social Security benefits, and the state offers up to $6,000 in exemptions for other forms of retirement income, such as 401(k) withdrawals.

On the other hand, the city has much lower violent crime rates, averaging 4.13 incidents per 1,000 residents compared to 6.29 statewide. Seniors concerned about safety should know that assisted living communities often use security cameras and other crime-prevention systems to protect residents.

Additionally, assisted living communities in the state must have emergency preparedness plans in place to safeguard residents during natural disasters.
