The taxpayers are fleeing not the tax users like homeless and illegals. NYC will have to find more ways to screw the tax payers for the revenue gap.

This was happening during Guliani early days, he proposed the commuter tax that would offset the tax revenue gap that he was seeing as people were moving out. It got canned before businesses were afraid that they would lose employees and big businesses threaten to move to NJ. That was the whole deal when Goldmans and Chase started building towers in Jersey City. Goldman never moved to JC as the tax was dropped.

Today, the city is banking on use taxes, fees, and property taxes on top of income taxes. This year will be another good year for revenue as wall street will produce another good year but there will be shortfalls because DeBlasio just kept spending money.

It is your good fortune that I don't know how to paste links here - you don't want to know what I would paste in response to your "response" :-). In the 1950s people couldn't have believed that Detroit could ever go the way Detroit went either, after the history of massive economic prosperity. But the exact same factors were at play: loss of business + incompetent city government.
