For the millionth time, high taxes are an economic killer

It’s been reported and well-documented many times and now there’s new evidence: High taxes send people to the moving vans. The MacIver Institute reports:

"Wisconsin's high tax rates could encourage many people to leave the state, particularly high-income residents who pay the greatest share of taxes, says a new study from the John K. MacIver Institute for Public Policy and the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA).

"Calculations show that people moving from Wisconsin to neighboring states - Iowa, Minnesota and Michigan - can keep more money in their pockets thanks to better tax climates. Illinois is the only state that shares a border with Wisconsin where taxpayers are always worse off.
