The new state income tax gained significant attention recently when professional golfer Phil Mickelson stated that he was looking to move out of the state because of the new income tax. Mickelson later retracted his comments, noting that it was not appropriate to air his personal issues publicly. However, many others share a view similar to that expressed initially by Mickelson.
Just hop on the bus, Gus, you don't need to discuss much.

Can't get more taxed than a Californian medical device manufacturer.
And what about actors? I know the Dems put in special provisions to support the movie industry but I don’t see how the individuals can get around this. They wanted it...they got it...now live with it. Just don’t expect me to pay higher ticket fees to support their lifestyle.
The statistic I have seen is that five business each week leave CA.

After a couple of years they will miss the California weather and come back. Money can’t buy you good weather. I’ll pay a bit more and stay. Did the humid thunderstorm, dodging tornadoes and living in a freezer thing already.

While some states are raising state income tax rates others are thinking about getting rid of theirs.
I wonder how long it will take California to appeal to the Federal Government to force high income individuals and companies to stay. After all, freedom of movement is just another one of those pesky rights guaranteed by the out dated Constitution.
BTW - I expect any day now to read that California is pushing, again, an attempt to claim a portion of military and civil service retirements based on the number of years you were stationed in California. They have attempted it twice and there is no reason to think they will not attempt it a third or fourth or fifth time.

(BOHEICA and TANSTAAFL - both seem very appropriate today.)
