Brontes: We'll gladly take your millionaires in Texas. Move silicon valley over to Austin while you are at it.
jehovahs witness protection: If you have to be rich, you don't want to be rich in CaliforniaFTFY
Meatybrain: You deduct state taxes. It doesn't add to your tax burden, it just moves it around a bit.
AverageAmericanGuy: If you rich people don't want to pay your fair share, then get the hell out.
Lorelle: jehovahs witness protection: If you have to be rich, you don't want to be rich in CaliforniaFTFYI'd rather be here than in a flyover state full of ignorant Teabaggers.
RealFarknMcCoy2: OgreMagi: RealFarknMcCoy2: Boo farking hoo. It's the tax rate on income over a million dollars per year. Pardon me while I cry a river for those poor, destitute multi-millionaires...It's not just one tax here in California. Across the board, we have some of the highest taxes in the entire country. They only thing that isn't high is property taxes. And even though Federal taxes are the same rates across the country, California paychecks are higher but we have a higher cost of living. So we pay more Federal income tax but aren't really making more money once you adjust (New York City probably has this same problem).I am a California native. I know what California's taxes are like. I still say, if you're pulling in more than a million dollars a year, you don't deserve any farking sympathy.
Ed Willy: Problem is no Silicon Valley computer scientist wants to live in a state where the education board is dominated by creationists, no matter the low tax rates.
illannoyin: According to the U.S. Census Bureau, from 2000 to 2010, California lost a net of 519,600 jobs while Texas gained 1,093,600 jobs. This fueled a net domestic outward migration of middle class families from California, with almost two million more Americans moving out of California than moving in. Meanwhile, Texas saw a net gain of 781,542 from domestic migration, with about 1,000 people per day moving into the state in 2009./It's not just rich people//It's not just California///I'm counting the days
AverageAmericanGuy: Lately I've been thinking of ways to skirt tax laws, because ever since the dollar's gone to shiat my tax burden has been pretty hefty, even though I live and work overseas.What if you weren't taxed on your income, but on the percentage of your income left over after deducting all your expenses. Food, housing, repairs, fuel, toys, video games, TVs, every expense. Since you're spending that money, it's going back into the economy, so it's not being hoarded and removed from the economy. Then, at the end of the year, if you spent everything you have, you aren't going to get hit by a tax bill that sends you into debt. Rather, you'd owe nothing since you've already passed along the money.The remainder of the unspent income could be taxed, which would put a greater burden on high-income earners who would either pay taxes on a larger amount or would spend in greater amounts. Either way is a net benefit to society. Low-income earners who are eking out their existence wouldn't pay any tax at all.
OgreMagi: Don't you guys hate transplant Californians with the heat of a super nova?

BuckTurgidson: A state that votes itself reasonable public goods,then always vehemently votes against any public servant who would dare tally the bill for such goods,Failing?[www.ssqq.com image 400x397]
ongbok: Brontes: We'll gladly take your millionaires in Texas. Move silicon valley over to Austin while you are at it.The problem with living in Austin is that eventually you will have to venture out into real Texas, and real Texas is a horrible place. From what I've been told.
SirCodeAlot: Ed Willy: Problem is no Silicon Valley computer scientist wants to live in a state where the education board is dominated by creationists, no matter the low tax rates.umm yeah, why would income matter to a computer scientist. We are all about the local education board's view points. ....dumb ass sparty// For the record, just took a Job in Austin this summer. Turned down offers from LA and Silicon and CT. Money does farking matter
Meatybrain: You deduct state taxes. It doesn't add to your tax burden, it just moves it around a bit.If you're too stupid to realize this, you don't deserve to be a farking millionaire, you gilded asswipe.

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.
