Overview of Alaska Independent Living

An independent nature and love of the natural world are common among Alaska residents and seniors are no exception. Unfazed by harsh winters with the accompanying long nights, Alaskans never lose their love of the wide-open spaces and abundant wild life that their state has to offer. Most of the Alaska independent living facilities are found in the state’s three largest cities: Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau. However, as they increase in popularity independent living communities are springing up in other locations. Although faced with a higher cost of living than most other states across the country, Alaskan household budgets are helped by dividend from oil revenues, which are distributed to residents. Additionally, Alaska enjoys the lowest tax burden per individual. It collects neither state sales tax nor individual income taxes from its citizens.
