Did you know that people usually like low taxes, which is what I support? Go figure!

The state of New York, a largely Liberal state, has had the biggest departure of people from the period of 2000-2010. 3.4 million people left the state according to the Tax Foundation. The gained 2.1 million people in that decade, so overall the state lost more people and also lost $45.6 billion in income.

More than 600,000 of these New York residents moved to Florida, a largely independent state. Well over 200,000 people from the state of Pennsylvania, also largely Liberal, moved to Florida to, taking $8 billion from the state.

According to the Tax Foundation, many of these people did move because of the high taxes in those two states.

California, another largely Liberal state, is also known for high taxes. It has seen similar patterns. Over 500,000 people left California from the 2000-2010 period, moving to Texas, a largely Conservative state, taking over $14 billion in income. Texas, has seen massive prosperity under its governor, Rick Perry. The state has no income or estate tax. Around 28,000 moved from California to Nevada and around 30,000 moved from California to Arizona. Together combining over a loss of $1 billion in income.

Sales Taxes really don't matter. Income tax, which is what Historygenius was referring to, are the things that affect income the most.
