I live in Arizona and am looking to retire in 4 years time. I am wondering which city would be best for someone of my age then (62) where I do not have to drive, can have easy access to basic necessities and can live on modest social security benefits.

Well, this post is two year's old now... still considering Romania for retirement? I am from Texas, wife is from Transylvania... I retired to Cluj Napoca. Absolute the best city in Romania for Americans to retire in. Everything you need is here including American football team, Cluj Crusaders. Very good public transportation, parks, hospitals, and this is an university town full of foreign students... way kool here.. The Cluj Count has spoken..

The law requiring people in Romania to pay taxes on their "foreign income" , 16%, is fairly new. I think it is intended to tax the many Romanians that work in other Europe contries. However it seems like "foreign income" entails pensions too. So, if you have American Social Security, and pension, you have to declare that for taxes purposes (by Romania). I would love to discover a clarification of the law stating that they are not considered "foreign income" but, so far, I did not.

>> "I do not understand this." <<
Information is valid. As long as you use only debit/credit cards linked to your American (?) Bank you don't have to worry about taxes in Romania. From their "financial" stand point you are "INVISIBLE" ! :-))
The only time you may worry about "taxes" is if you derive any income ....in Romania.
Imagine you are a tourist in the country. Would you worry about taxes ?
Now if you collect interest from "deposits" at a Romanian Bank, or get involved i any activity from which you would derive an income, THAT you'd have to declare, and pay taxes on.
Any other questions ? :-))
