Telecommute/Work Remotely

Is This What Your Commute Looks Like Right Now?

Will your employer allow you to work remotely or telecommute?

If so, why not keep your same job and move your residence to Lake Tahoe, Nevada? We are seeing many people make the move to this area after learning about the quality of life in Lake Tahoe, the backyard activities and the low tax climate. Sometimes all it takes with your employer is a change of location with your Human Resources Dept to become a remote worker.

For many, the Income Tax savings created by moving to Nevada from California would pay a good portion of a mortgage and home expenses for the year—- see our Lake Tahoe, NV Real Estate Purchase Cost Scenario and our Potential Tax Savings pages.

The drive from the Heavenly North/ Lake Tahoe, NV area to the Bay Area is +/- 4 hours depending on weather and traffic. Or, a private flight from Minden-Tahoe Airport to San Carlos or Palo Alto Airports would be 40 min to 1 hour 30 min depending on the aircraft.

People are figuring out they would rather create a better quality of life by living in Lake Tahoe.  Most choose to locate where outdoor recreation is in their backyard.  The Heavenly North/ Lake Tahoe, NV area allows for easy access to many backyard activities within 1-10 miles when it is time to “punch out” of work.
