You see them everywhere. The store, gas stations, on line buying, paycheck, etc. Taxes are the necessary evil. But do they have to be so high and are there items that shouldn’t be taxed? Look at California, yeah the land of fruits and nuts. They are looking at taxing texting. So where and when does it end? It doesn’t and as states go blue, it gets worse. Let’s look at California. Not only are people leaving but corporations as well.
Over 140,000 more people left California for other states than people who moved there from other states. Only New York and New Jersey’s numbers were higher. Now the state is still growing but that’s growth from those coming from other countries. And I would love to know realistic numbers of how many are illegals. But that’s for another day and story. The big story is Businesses leaving.
Look at this from Chief Executive.
Business relocation expert Joe Vranich who, as president of Irvine-based Spectrum Location Services, has been tracking the exodus of companies of all sizes. Vranich told Investor’s Business daily (IBD) that from 2008 through 2015, at least 1,687 California companies pulled up stakes and moved elsewhere. And those are only the reported ones. Vranich cites a rule of thumb among business site-selection experts that five companies leave for each one that actually gets reported in the press. So it’s probable that as many as 10,000 companies have left in recent years.
So is there anything that’s safe from being taxed? I don’t know. You can tell me in the comments section below.
