Are you thinking of or planning to leave New York because of taxes or to get a job? If so, we want to hear from you. Contact us at 232-1010.
A recent study by an organization called Tax Foundation shows that as people leave NY they take a lot of money with them. The study estimates the loss to be in the billions of dollars.
The study shows that from 2000 to 2010 the state lost $45.6 billion in income. That leads the nation and is considerably higher when you compare it to other big states like California ($29.4 billion) and Illinois ($20.4 billion).
News10NBC wants to take a closer look at this and ask people why they want to or have to leave the state.
