Migration patterns for 2016 show that Americans tended to move away from high-tax states and into states where residents keep more of what they earn.
United Van Lines, the nation’s largest moving company, recently released its annual movers study report showing that South Dakota overtook Oregon as the top inbound destination. Generally, more people moved toward the West, and states in the Northeast saw the largest exodus of residents. The top four outbound states in 2016, in order, were New Jersey, Illinois, New York, and Connecticut.
The Tax Foundation pointed out in a recent blog post that those results are similar to the organization’s annual state business tax climate index.
