Hey, they’re just chasing their tax dollars south, since that’s where they all seem to be going .
Actually I’d say it’s about self defense, crime, and gun rights as much as anything–you’ll notice IL, MD, NY, etc are the states bleeding out, and they’re also the places where the law gives the criminals the upper hand.
The OP says “It’s called tax flight.” He’s just making that up—how would he ascertain that without polling people about WHY they’re moving? It could just as easily be called “Cold flight,” as it’s largely a movement from northern states to southern states.
We have had so many Kalifornia Hippies invade our state, and are now transforming Washington into Kali-North. We’re moving back down South to get away from the high-tax, nanny-state, you’re-living-wrong libtards. Gotta get these idiots outta my pocket!
Taxes (and what business taxes do to consumer prices) are a large driver of cost of living and housing. Difference in land value is scarcity related, but a vast majority of the difference in the construction cost of a building is directly driven by taxes.
