NY leads nation in tax exodus: $45.6B lost to other states


New York led the nation over the last decade in the exodus of people, a hit of $45.6 billion in personal income from New York’s economy, the national Tax Foundation found.

The report is similar to ones down by the Empire Center for New York State Policy, which has reported that New York is getting older and smaller.

California the second-largest income loser, down $29.4 billion, followed by Illinois, down $20.4 billion, according to the Tax Foundation, a business-backed conservative group.

The greatest beneficiary of the exodus from New York and other states have been, not surprisingly, Florida — followed by Arizona and Texas.

  2. Here’s the reality… Under Cuomo NY has experienced the demise of 39,453 NY state businesses last year, Cuomo is raiding $1.75 billion from the reserves of the already over budget State Insurance Fund (SIF). Cuomo can not even hold on to his democratic majority which is in the middle of a corruption scandal with “show-me-the-money culture” and “pay-to-play politics” throughout Albany. Cuomo has disenfranchised the Northern and Western part of New York with his SAFE Act. Cuomo is afraid to take a stand and make a decision, either way with respect to fracking, gambling or abortions. No matter what your position is, Cuomo is leaving New Yorkers with no resolution to these issues or the ability to move forward. New York has the highest taxes in the nation, is the most indebted state, with 33 percent of income dedicated to borrowing. It is ranked as the least “business-friendly” state in the country and if that were not bad enough NY has the distinction of being the least free state in the union and is called the “Nanny State” with politicians legislating what we eat and drink. Municipal governments from Nassau County to Yonkers to Syracuse are teetering. And during Mr. Cuomo’s time in office, unemployment has risen above the national average. 9% of the state’s 2000 population left for another state between 2000 and 2011 — the highest such figure in the nation, see the study by George Mason’s independent libertarian-leaning Mercatus Center.
