Fort Worth, Arlington, San Antonio Tie for 7th Among U.S. Cities Where $100K Goes Furthest

A new cost-of-living study by fintech company SmartAsset says Fort Worth, Arlington, and San Antonio are tied at No. 7 among 76 U.S. cities for "Where $100,000 Goes Furthest." In the three Texas cities, a person earning $100,000 takes home $74,515 after taxes. But according to the study, that money is actually worth $80,124 when you adjust for the cost of living in all three cities—which is 7% lower than the U.S. average. See which city ranked highest—and where $100K is only worth a measly $36,000.
