President Trump Has Officially Filed To Move From New York To Florida, Where Taxes Are Much Lower

President Donald Trump confirmed last week that he filed paperwork to become a resident of Florida.

Trump is joining a growing number of New Yorkers who are moving to Florida and saving on taxes. Fellow billionaire New Yorker Carl Icahn also recently announced a move to Miami, joining 63,722 New Yorkers who moved to Florida in the past year.

New York State has a top income tax rate of 8.82% while New York City adds as much as 3.876%. Recent tax law changes make it impossible to deduct those payments from federal taxes, making them much more costly.

New York’s Democratic governor tweeted “good riddance” in response to the news of Republican Trump’s move, while the Democratic mayor wrote “don’t let the door hit you on the way out or whatever.”

In practice though, New York doesn’t give up on its income tax easily. There is a “100 percent chance” that New York state will audit Trump, a tax accountant told the AP, since they want to be sure he really has relocated.

Trump and his minions, including white nationalists, kKK members, Russians, and racists are a threat to Florida’s tourist industry and it’s diverse citizens. The state has more than 40 percent of it population that are non Anglo/white. Trump and MAGA is at war with non white people.

Lmao FL has one of the strongest conservative Latino populations in the country. Not just Cubans, many PRs and S.Americans actually like Trump and his immigration policy.

New York Will Fuel Florida for decades. Favorable tax climate, weather, etc. The irony in all this is that the same people fleeing states with State income tax, are the people who voted for it. Prepare for the invasion and ultimately what will lead Florida to become a permanent blue State because those who are fleeing go to States like Florida and Texas and begin to vote for the policies they are running from.

So you’re saying that because Donald Trump’s new “tax law changes” which “make it impossible to deduct(NYC up to 3.876%)those payments from federal taxes, making them much more costly,” Trump is running from one of the states that was affected by his new law?

Trump has always verbally hyped up his properties but on paper he has reported them to be worth less so he can challenge government appraisals resulting in less Property taxes thus increasing NOI. This is Real Estate 101.

You probably have no clue how tax law works but please enlighten us. If Trump has employees in the state he has to pay payroll taxes. Since he has property located in the city he also gets assessed the MTC commuter charge as well. That is solely based of the cost of assets located in NY. Add on real estate taxes for his personal home / investment properties and Don’t forget to add in the sales tax in NYC. Making a statement that he hasnt “paid taxes in years” is beyond false its laughable.

What about his own income taxes?

Anonymous
1 year ago

Well if he has taxable income within the state of New York under their own tax laws than he pays an income tax. Vice versa, if you have a taxable loss you probably wont have to pay an income tax. The CPA firm he uses is a large one that knows what they are doing. People look at income taxes like thats the biggest tax but in reality NY has a bunch of taxes that guys like him pay.

Also, lets not forget to take into account how much of his own money he pumps into the local economy for dining out, events, rental cars, etc. Cuomo’s comment may look nice but the governor already admitted that NY will be short on its budget if ppl continue to leave.

Why Trump’s Tax Reform was the RIGHT thing to do. Numbers are simplified for illustration, but the concepts are correct.

Two people, one in NYC, one in Miami, each make $100,000 in taxable income.
Each pay 36% in INCOME taxes or $36,000 per year.

This is the breakdown pre-Trump plan.
NYC guy pays $23,000 to the FEDERAL govt. and $13,000 to the STATE AND LOCAL govt. total $36k
Miami guys pays $36,000 to FEDERAL govt. and $0 to the STATE AND LOCAL govt. total $36k

Not fair for the USA. Two people pay the same total, but the lunkhead New York state and local politicians, get $13k and the country gets shortchanged, but the NYC guy.

NOW, after the initial Trump plan, the NYC guy can deduct up to $10,000.
Meaning that if NYC guy wants to keep living like this, and NY State and NYC keep their taxes the same, then NYC guy pays $26,000 to the Feds and $13,000 to the State and Local taxes (SALT).

Still not fair that NYC only pays $26k to the Federal govt and Miami guy pays $36k to the Federal govt, but it is a step in the right direction.

It really makes a difference when your INCOME is $1,000,000+…that gets painfull for NY’ers.

My personal opinion is that there should be ZERO deduction for SALT, if you want jackass politicians shoot subways all over the place, pay for them yourself….or move to Florida.
