I come from the highest total tax state in the nation, and one that is going to increase the state tax by 67% in 2020 after already increasing it 67-100% in 2016 and even I agree. No state should be subsidizing other ones this way.

I also agree, even though as a New Yorker it hits our state hard.

A billionaire from my town in NJ, moved to FL not too long ago. The newspaper said it caused a $150M shortfall in tax revenue. So he was paying $150M a year for the privilege of living in NJ. I would move under those circumstances too. And this is from someone who likes NJ a lot more than FL.

I also have plenty of friends and family with second homes in FL. They often end up claiming FL as their primary residence rather than their NJ home. You have to spend 183 days a year out of the state to do this. And NJ checks receipts and bills, to make sure.

It might be different if they were the self reliant, get the govt out of my life freedom loving type, but I suspect they are more like termites, demanding to be fed the same services they fled, but at a lower/no tax rate.
People complain about illegals invading, but the home grown welfare cases are probably worse because they think they have some birthright to their neighbors money.

Where did he make his Billions? If he made them in NJ and NY then pay up.

Have no problem with people moving after they make their money but donít work in NYC and complain about taxes when it gives you access to business deals that generate serious cash.

Makes sense for him but small detail. 150 million / 8.93 top tax rate = 1.68 BILLION. IN ONE YEAR. Someone making a billion+ a year... cry me a river.

And he was probably fine with paying $150M a year but it wasn't enough for them and were planning to raise it to $180M.
