Can I establish residency in Texas with your address?**

If you are new to the travelling lifestyle there are many decisions that you will be making.  One of the most important decisions is where to establish residency or your “domicile.” You are free to choose from all 50 states, but remember you can only be a resident of one state. You must consider vehicle registration, auto insurance, health insurance, voter registration, driver’s license, mail, state income taxes, jury duty, and probate. Intent is important as well. If you intend to be a Texas resident, you must do certain things to show this. Some of those things are to register your vehicles in the county of residence, get a Texas Driver’s license, get Texas vehicle insurance, employ a Texas attorney, join a local library, establish a Texas bank account, or register to vote. These actions show intent to make Texas your domicile. Of course, you will need an address in the state that you intend to be a resident of and that is usually your mailing address. Your “residence” is where you lay your head to sleep, but your “domicile” is a permanent place that does not change. You will be able to use a Texas Home Base address as your ”domicile” to make the aforementioned efforts to establish residency in Texas (ex. Texas Driver’s License, vehicle insurance, voter registration, etc.)
