Sorry if this is not well organsnised or repeats, what follows is scraped together from some different notes and previous posts
Choose your desired State for your Legal Domicile, solve that first.
Health insurance and administration of other social*safety*net programs, varies **very** widely by state.
Best IMO is a real S&B residence, ideally with a trusted and stable friend or*family. *F&F real home address is better for the legal domicile address, even if it is not (yet) necessary.
And that address has nothing to do with receiving any mail, you still use the letterbox service for your **mailing** address.
Those living at your residential address are not in any way disturbed, once you've got things set, little to no mail arrives there.
Of course the assumption is you aren't actually breaking laws, using this system for fraudulent purposes.
The Mailing Address can then be anywhere, but a letterbox service aka CMRA (Commercial Mail Receiving Agent) near your domicile address raises fewer eyebrows.
Best if all*government*and financial databases are all consistent, just showing those two across the board.
Some like Escapees and St Brendan's Isle can in theory and at least for now provide both, but they may not offer your state of choice.
The Domicile Residential address does not receive much or any mail at all once it's set up.
Every important provider / agency's database lets you use a separate Mailing address, and don't care where it is. But IMO should be near your DR, and there are often dozens per state, can change anytime, not a critical thing like the DR.
Using any*commercial*service for the DR now may be fine for the likes of Escapees and SBI with lawyers available to help sort out occasional glitches as with voting issues recently.
But IMO as the REAL ID and*money*flow regs keep tightening up, a friend or family DR is the safest option to avoid future problems.
Note everything is up to the provider - State Dept vs IRS vs insurance vs a broker - and whether or not their database uses the blacklist services.
Each voter*registration*jurisdiction also has their own rules. I was able to use a*lease*doc & library card for mine.
Yes, never use F&F to receive / forward more that a few pieces of mail per year, asking way too much.
Property*taxes*are usually based on the location of the property, not the*legal*residence of the owner.
Any letterbox*service*will accept and forward packages, but of course that costs
Best when ordering stuff, use a Mailing address direct to a local receiver, where you plan to be then.
Your DR listed with the gov agencies and financial providers is the only one should be consistent and stable.
but yes, choose your DR state first based on tax,*medical insurance*whatever
So many posters on these topics just have no clue about the recent trends on these issues post 9/11. REAL ID ring a bell?
Lots of*government*agencies and financial providers' databases use frequently updated blacklisting filters
for the specific purpose of **refusing to accept** any*commercial*mail forwarding services address as your*legal"residential" **domicile** address.
Doesn't matter how you try to "format" it, or leave out the legally required PMB. Not under the control of the*commercialservices which agencies or companies will continue to let it slide in the future.
Again, the*legal*"residential" domicile address issue has **nothing** to do with mail*delivery*issues.
Yes, get a good **mail forwarding** service for that purpose. It should IMO be close to your domicile address, at least in the same state.
And Escapees or SBI's provided **domicile address** - if that's the state of residence you want for legal purposes - may well continue to be "good enough", with explicit State court-based acknowledgement of our Nomadic status.
But down the road, maybe not!*
No commercial service has control over which agencies or companies may blacklist them in the future. Nice thing is, they do have lawyers to help try to resolve such issues.
With SBI in the past you could just mail in a notarized "Declaration of Domicile" form to the Clay County Controller, allows you to use SBI's*
411 Walnut Street
address, good for all (I think)*government*providers. They may have needed to use a different address to resolve a recent local political flap about their customers' voting rights.
A voter's card often helps with stricter providers.
Nowadays the initial process must be done in person there.
And apparently so far so good with financial databases.
IMO best to be consistent across the board.
I agree short of F&F this gov-sanctioned method is excellent, for those happy to be FL residents. High net worth people will want to get professional advice on that of course.
But as a commercial provider, some financial databases using blacklisting services do refuse the Walnut St address.
Ideally an official Feds-approved workaround like SBI's appears that all providers are required to accept, but that may require new laws/regs.
R In the US, many financial institutions and gov agencies subscribe to database services and knock back mail*serviceaddresses when you try to use them as your*legal*residence.
St Brendan's Isle and Escapees seem to have figured it out though.
