ABSTRACT
The article discusses the claim that state income taxes cause tax-flight by the affluent, reduce economic growth, and stifle job creation in the U.S. The claim is debunked by the article which stresses that the U.S. is not loose when it comes to escaping state income taxes. The role played by the state income tax as something that stands between Americans and prosperity is downplayed. The counterproductivity of taxing the rate through progressive taxation is stressed.
