jehovahs witness protection: If you have to be rich, you don't want to be rich in CaliforniaFTFY
AverageAmericanGuy: If you rich people don't want to pay your fair share, then get the hell out.
davidphogan: I had the option when I worked in Washington to move there and skip Oregon's 9% or whatever income tax rate, but still get to shop in Portland with a 0% sales tax. The problem was, Vancouver would suck to live in, and Portland doesn't. That 9% penalty was worth it.I wasn't making anywhere near the $1m to hit the levels they're talking about in the article, but 9% of my salary wasn't enough to live in a shiathole. You get what you pay for.
Brontes: We'll gladly take your millionaires in Texas. Move silicon valley over to Austin while you are at it.
uselessgit: I'm waiting for the flood of rich liberals who are going to flock to CA in order to be good citizens and pay the highest tax possible.
Meatybrain: You deduct state taxes. It doesn't add to your tax burden, it just moves it around a bit.

HotWingAgenda: I'm in California, and part of the working poor. My boss handed me my W-2 this year, and it showed my taxable earnings as an obscenely high number I've never seen before. I thought it was a mistake, because if I was getting paid that much, I wouldn't be looking for a new job.Over 25% of my pay went to state and Federal government for various automatic withholdings, and I still owe $5 each on my tax return to California and the Feds.
