New York Post: A concept that state legislators cannot comprehend is that when the state taxes get too high, people move to another state that has lower state taxes so they can keep more of their hard-earned money. There is a message in the following story, but I am sure it will go over the heads of the New York legislature and governor.
“New Yorkers are fleeing the state and city in alarming numbers — and costing a fortune in lost tax dollars, a new study shows. More than 1.5 million state residents left for other parts of the United States from 2000 to 2008, according to the report from the Empire Center for New York State Policy. It was the biggest out-of-state migration in the country.”
