Posted on 01/18/2013 9:39:44 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
After California residents voted to increase taxes via Proposition 30, state revenues have decreased, and residents and businesses are leaving to avoid burdensome taxes and regulations.
However, as Forbes notes, leaving California is not always easy; the state considers anyone in the state for anything other than a temporary or transitory purpose as a resident.
The burden is on the taxpayer to show they are not a Californian. The state presumes anyone who has been in California for at least nine months is a resident.
It usually takes 18 months for someone to no longer be presumed a resident, which can make it difficult for people who flee the state to convince the state government they are no longer California residents...

I’m surprised California has not put an EXIT tax payable at the border.
How much you got?
Turn it over!
I never spent a minute in Oklahoma or Arkansas that I didn't have to.
Sometimes, you just need to tell folks to sit down and shut up. And maybe be harsh about it.
I’m military, so I don’t pay taxes in CA. I wonder when they’ll discover that thousands of CA military don’t pay taxes? Of course, if they were to do that, then I would reconsider maintaining CA as my home state.
A reverse of the Okie invasion? Nothing would surprise me any more.
I lived in CA a long time ago, and about 10 years after I left I got a letter from the Franchise Tax Board. I wrote back sort of rudely, but without using bad words, although I wish I had, and never heard from them again. But if I get another letter from them I most certainly will be using bad words. I left CA for a reason.
How does CA figure you are still a resident when another state considers you a resident because you are already licensed in said state?

My parents bought several acres of land out in Apple Valley in the early 1950’s. The contract stipulations of who they could re-sell the land to are the most racist things I’ve ever read.
I hit stop and edited but it posted both.
One day they’ll speak of an iron curtain separating California from the rest of the country.
Pound sand California. I’m leaving. (eventually)
Never mind NY. East Germany did play a similar game.
So just raise taxes on those who remain. Problem solved!
(They probably will).
Yes, it's typical of high-tax Democrat states. New York was still going after Rush three years after he relocated to Florida.
But eventually even the California state employees guarding the border with Nevada will decide to evacuate.
It's time to build a fence between California and America.
Gotta get my kids out first, OK?
Same here. But it won’t be easy. We have a production company right here in faggotland (W Hollywood) and Texas does not have the infrastructure to accommodate our type of entertainment industry.
