A lot of people have the option to become more financially independent after leaving the state, and the first thing many of them want to do is buy a home.
But before you can get that done, you need to know how to prepare for the transition.
The first step is to determine your educational background.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, a person’s educational background determines how much they can earn and how much their tax and benefit credits will be.
So to start, you’ll want to know the following:Are you an in-state or out-of-state student?
Are you on Medicaid or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)?
If you’re on Medicaid, the federal government funds your state’s payments for you and for your dependents, including childless adults.
If you’re an out-state resident, you can choose to pay your state back.
In Texas, you have two choices: either you enroll in a program called “high school equivalency,” which allows you to earn up to 30 percent of your high school’s earnings in a single year and pay no income taxes on the money, or you pay the full amount into a state-controlled retirement fund.
But you can’t take advantage of this program unless you are an in or out resident.
For those who aren’t eligible for the high school equivalence program, the state has several programs that are open to those who are:The Texas Opportunity Program , which provides some income-contingent state aid to people who are eligible for Medicaid, andThe Texas Workforce Investment Program, which is available to those eligible for TANF.

After you know how much money you’ll need to earn, you should also know how many months to plan to leave Texas.
You’ll want a good idea of how long you’re looking to stay.
The federal government will reimburse you for the first three months you leave the state and the rest of the time you are here, so the first time you leave Texas, your state will pay the federal share of your income taxes for a full year.
But if you leave during the three months after that, the cost of your education and the state will pick up most of the tab.
So you’ll pay about $1,500 for the year you leave and another $600 for the remaining time you stay in the state.
If you don’t plan to stay for that long, you could pay as much as $2,000 a year for a Texas Education Opportunity Scholarship that gives you a 10 percent tuition discount on the amount you earn.
But if you choose to stay, you’d need to contribute about $4,000 into the fund in order to get the discount.
If, however, you don�t plan to earn much money during the first year, you may not have to pay the state any more.
If the state does not contribute to your TANf payments, you will be able to get $300 a month from the fund to pay for your expenses.
