Flee High New York Taxes–and Get Audited

He’s after your money.

They can’t afford to build a Berlin Wall all around the state of New York to keep people in, but they’ve been doing the next best thing: if you move out of New York to escape high taxes, they’ll audit you (https://www.foxnews.com/politics/new-york-goes-after-residents-fleeing-overtaxed-blue-state-for-low-tax-states-with-intrusive-audits).

Far Left New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo laments, “This is the flip side [of federal tax cut legislation]. Tax the rich, tax the rich, tax the rich. We did. Now, God forbid, the rich leave.”

Duh–!

New York has a $2.3 billion budget deficit, and, in recent years, has lost 48,000 residents who fled the state’s high tax regime, where the top 1 percent pay nearly half the taxes in the state. Illinois, another Blue State paradise, has lost 45,000 residents.

“The rich” don’t want to stay there and get raped, so they leave; and New York pursues them with “intrusive audits,” calling them “defectors.” Iron Curtain, anyone?

But they can’t lower the taxes, because then the Democrat Party couldn’t dole out free stuff to its voting base.

If they could afford to build a wall, they would.
