California lawmakers are pushing legislation that would impose a new tax on the state's wealthiest residents — even if they've already moved to another part of the country. Assemblyman Alex Lee, a progressive Democrat, last week introduced a bill in the California State Legislature that would impose an extra annual 1.5% tax on those with a "worldwide net worth" above $1 billion, starting as early as January 2024. (Snip) Worldwide wealth extends beyond annual income to include diverse holdings such as farm assets, arts and other collectibles, and stocks and hedge fund interest.

Until about 20 years ago, any military person who spent a tour in California could look forward to being taxed by California if they later retired to a state that had no income tax. The Supreme Court finally called foul on that.

Half the state's income taxes paid by top 1%. They knew people would leave so some genius said let's tax them anyway! I hope they pass this. Looking forward to seeing the coming collapse happen that much sooner. Then they'll blame racism and transphobia and cry for Federal bailout.

There is nothing that democrats love more than taxing people who cannot vote against them. Taxing people who have already fled the state is the Holy Grail of state taxes.

I was born in New York over 70 years ago. Do I have a tax for being born there? Do I have to pay every year? I plan to be buried in CT. I suppose I should check to if there will be a tax to be buried there.

How does a wealth tax differ from ordinary property taxes? I am not sure it does. The only provision I am alarmed by is taxing ex-residents for their wealth. That strikes me as illegal unless the wealth is in the form of properties held in California.

Just like New York. Currently they only tax income which becomes a huge disincentive to work which is what they want. Make people more dependent on government, and the government becomes master. No doubt they have plans to tax savings too. In the end they will just confiscate everything in the tried-and-true Communist way.

Whenever a blue state comes up with a stupid law like this, they are daring the victim to take them to court. To counter this, the red states should pass equally unconstitutional laws to stop them and dare the blue state governments to take them to court.

Many moons ago Rush Limbaugh fought with New York state over his move to Florida. He was constantly audited the to the point where he couldn't go into the state and stay for too long a visit or he would be considered a resident to be taxed. This is what's happening in California you can't shake the tax hounds by just moving away.

#25 is right. I also remember the fight Rush Limbaugh had when NY wanted to tax him after he moved to Florida. He won and did not have to pay their Tax! Every single person CA tries to tax should take it to court! There is no way anyone should be taxed after they leave that state, or any other Blue State! Let the Exodos begin! They will be plugging up I-94 for as far as the eye can see! God Save us here in Florida!

They can tax based on income/assets during the time you lived in California. That's true of any state. If they try to tax you for wealth/property you acquired after you moved?... Ahhh... No... That's blatantly illegal and I think there's case law in New York concerning that. Rush Limbaugh used to complain that NYC would try to tax him for whenever he returned for some event. But they could only tax him for business he conducted whole he was in town.

Certainly stretches the idea of who is a resident, and when that designation is established. A lot of California faculty and professors move to a low-tax state after they retire. They earned all of their income, benefited from the home appreciation and spend their six-figure pension somewhere other than where they earned it all. Which brings me back to when residency starts. Most states require someone to live in the state 1 year before they qualify for in-state tuition. But, someone is able to vote in that state earlier.

So the top 1% pays half the income taxes now. If half of those people move to Texas or Florida, California loses 25% of its total income tax revenue immediately. They will take their businesses with them, which means that California will lose another 10 to 25% of their income tax revenue from the now unemployed workers of the businesses who left. Property values will crash, reducing property taxes that local governments rely on. Next, sales tax revenues will fall 30 to 50%. So now the state has half of its former income tax revenue, and the localities have 60% of their former property tax and sales tax revenue. There will be no new investment in California. You would have to be out of your mind to risk investment or expansion there. No one is going to want to ship through California ports anymore either. This is a wonderful plan for turning California into an economic wasteland. The only people it will benefit over the shorter term is bankruptcy lawyers. How these hacks keep their jobs is beyond me. Somebody fire them and bring in sensible ideas, like tax rate reductions that always increase government revenues.

White House using one-size-fits-all plan

The White House announced Wednesday it is taking strategic steps to protect renters, including setting up limits on egregious rate hikes. Critics, however, have called out the Biden administration's one-size-fits-all program that makes changes for renters at the expense of landlords. "We've seen it for so many years, and it's very frustrating," American Apartment Owners Association director Alexandra Alvarado said during Grady Trimble's report on "The Big Money Show" Wednesday. "[Mom-and-pop landlords] are not being treated differently, even though it affects them much more than it would affect any large company with thousands of units. They have room for it.

Democrats and far-left green groups have set their sights on regulating a wide range of popular household appliances in a bid to push their broader electrification and climate agenda. The push to regulate everyday appliances — including water heaters, furnaces, clothes washers, dishwashers, ceiling fans, microwave ovens and shower heads — comes as the Biden administration and Democratic lawmakers continue to set lofty net-zero and climate goals for weaning off fossil fuel dependence. Environmentalists have argued that electrification, banning natural gas hookups and implementing strict energy efficiency standards could help accelerate emissions reductions.

Michigan's auto industry has its "hiring" signs out, but few are applying and some who do quit by lunchtime. It is a nationwide problem that's hit small mom-and-pop suppliers and reverberated to the biggest carmakers in the world. The challenge is serious enough that the Michigan Manufacturers Association has increased its budget and brought in a new director of workforce development to aggressively promote auto manufacturing jobs. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of people employed by motor vehicle and parts manufacturers declined by 3,500 in January. In February, the decrease was larger, with a decline of

Billions of dollars worth of U.S. weapons are on the negotiating table between Russian strongman Vladimir Putin and Afghanistan’s Taliban government, according to at least one insider. Presidentish Joe Biden’s bungled bugout from Afghanistan resulted in a windfall for the new radical Islamic government, including artillery, attack helicopters, and thousands of HUMVEES, machine guns, radios — all left behind as our orderly withdrawal degenerated into a rout. The Department of Defense estimates the total value of the gear Biden left behind at a whopping $7.12 billion, and now Putin is reportedly offering to buy whatever he and the battered Russian Army need.

When Joe Biden was a US senator he referred to himself as “one of the poorest members” of Congress. But his fortunes rose precipitously following his years as vice-president, thanks to a flurry of cash from book deals and speeches — as well as regular kickbacks from his brother and youngest son, according to text messages from Hunter Biden’s laptop and a congressional probe. In 2016, his last year as vice-president, “middle class Joe” reported between $291,000 and about $1 million in assets and income outside his vice-presidential salary of $230,700.
