I retired & moved to Italy April 2018. I will be living in Europe for at least ten years. In filling out my California state tax form, there was a question regarding whether I moved out of the state. The answer is yes, but I still derive rental income from the two houses that I own in the state. I am concerned that if I answer yes, I may not be able to renew my drivers license in 2020 (I will not be applying for an Italian driving license) or vote in the state elections in 2020.
I have not moved to another state where I can have these benefits.
Can I maintain my driver's license & state voting rights while living outside of the country.
Do I have to pay annual California taxes in order to do so?
Thank you for your responses to my questions.
