- The only way increasing taxes and creating more taxes only works if they cut spending
- However, Cuomo, DeBlasio, and other politicians are increasing taxes without cutting spending

- The state is losing countless taxpayers
Not just taxpayers, but many businesses and corporations are fleeing New York to other states like Florida.

New York’s out-migration to Florida was by far the largest out-migration of any state in the U.S. The main reason for the move is due to high New York taxes. This holds true for the wealthy. For example, a taxpayer earning $650,000 annually in ordinary income saves $69,719 per year if they were to relocate from New York to the Sunshine State.

Acceleration Of New York Loses Taxpayers To Florida In Large Volume
The acceleration of New York Loses Taxpayers To Florida In Large Volume was when talks of the Tax Cuts and Job Act was started. The Tax Cuts and Job Act was passed and signed into law in 2017. This law capped the state and local tax deductions at $10,000. This law hurt taxpayers in high-taxed states. The $10,000 deductions cap was substantially lower than the amount claimed by high-income taxpayers. For example, New York taxpayers were able to deduct $22,000 prior to this new law. The new law capped the deductions to only $10,000. This was the fuel that ignited the firestorm of people leaving high-taxed states. The SALT panic of taxpayer fleeing high-tax states is in its early stages. The impact is devastating for the states affected by a huge population of an exodus. As more taxpayers get fed up, more taxpayers and businesses will be fleeing the high tax states in record numbers. Governor Andrew Cuomo credited the SALT cap for saving New York for a $2.3 million financial budget shortage.
New York Loses Taxpayers To Florida And How To Stop It
The governor called New York’s declining revenues and budget deficit as follows:
Our financial problems in the Great State of New York is as serious as a heart attack. We are doing our best in trying to raise revenues to cover our day to day operations of New York, but now we are seeing a mass exit of our taxpayers to other states that are not taxed as much. We need to immediately stop the flight of wealthy New Yorkers to states that are stealing our taxpayers like Florida.
Governors and lawmakers need to stop raising taxes and resorting to creating new taxes. Taxpayers are fed up. More media outlets are covering stories about high versus low-tax states. Many taxpayers are now fed up and are taking action by fleeing high-tax states.
