He also said the following:
New York will always have great memories and a special heart for New York. I paid millions in taxes and helped the economy in New York. However, I have been treated very badly by the political leaders of both the city and state.
The exit of President Trump and his family follows other New Yorkers leaving the state to other lower-taxed states. The tax increases by New York politicians are backfiring.
New York’s Mayor and Governor are anti-Trumpers. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo responded:
Good riddance he is leaving. It is not like Donald Trump paid taxes in New York anyways. Florida can have him.
Trump Flees New York To Florida Is Official And Not Just Talk

- However, this is not the case with President Trump
- President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania officially filed documents changing their official primary residences from New York to Palm Beach, Florida a few weeks ago

Why Is Florida Raking In Billions When New York Is On The Verge Of Bankruptcy
The government needs to run like a business.
- One of the most important factors with a successful company is to keep on generating new customers
- Same with city, county, and state government
- What does a state need to do to attract new businesses and taxpayers?
- Would you as a CEO of a company move to a state with high taxes?
- Would a CEO of a company move to a state like New York that is in financial crisis and the politicians keep on raising taxes and creating new ones?
- Most likely not
- Many states like Florida are thriving
- They are raking in billions and have a massive migration to their state due to low taxes at all levels and lower cost of living
- Florida has no state income taxes
- The state has no estate tax
- There is no inheritance tax in Florida
- New York’s state income tax rate surpasses the 8.0% mark
- President Trump has had enough
- Donald Trump was born in Queens, New York
- New York has been his primary residence all of his life. However, like many New Yorkers, he had enough
Trump said the following a few months ago about the state and Governor Andrew Cuomo:
New York’s high taxes at all levels create a hostile business environment. It is no wonder both people and businesses were fleeing New York in record numbers.
Reasons Why Taxpayers Are Fleeing New York
New York is one of the states where there is a mass exodus of taxpayers moving to lower-taxed states.
- Andrew Cuomo admitted that the state is experiencing a severe shortage of revenues
- New York’s tax increases and high taxes have hurt the middle class
The state has a $2.3 billion budget shortfall below estimated revenue projections.
Data And Numbers Prove High-Taxed States Are Getting Backfired
Michael Gracz of Gustan Cho Associates Mortgage News said the following:
Data from the U.S. Census Bureau showed that while Florida received more movers than any other state last year, New York’s outflows to the Sunshine State were the highest – 63,772 people. New York had the third-largest outflows of any state, with 452,580 people moving out within the past year. The SALT-driven exodus is likely only going to accelerate over the coming years – now that people have seen the tangible effects on their finances following this year’s tax season. As a high-net-worth taxpayer, Trump could come under scrutiny since New York is particularly “aggressive” in requiring taxpayers to prove that they actually moved with the intent to stay either permanently or indefinitely. He would need to spend less than 184 days in New York to avoid its tax obligations. Anyone maintaining a residence in the state with an adjusted grow income in excess of $500,000 has between a 90 percent and 99 percent chance of being audited.
New York, as well as California, are going to aggressively audit taxpayers leaving their states. This goes for both businesses and individual taxpayers.
Government Should Be Run Like A Business
Why are some states on the verge of bankruptcy and have high taxes and other states are thriving? It is because states like Florida with low taxes are running their state like a business. Competent politicians are key. It seems like states with a financial crisis has incompetent politicians. Their only solution is to increase taxes and create new taxes. This is not the way to go. Many individual taxpayers and businesses are leaving high taxed states. New York, Illinois, and California are the three top high taxed states in the nation. Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker recently doubled the state’s gas tax. Not only is he increasing taxes across the board, but he is also creating new taxes for Illinoisans. J.B. Pritzker proved his incompetence and lack of experience by approving wage increases to all state lawmakers. Lawmakers need to do something to attract new individual taxpayers and businesses to their state. Increasing taxes, creating new taxes, and being on the verge of bankruptcy is not the way.
