The Tax Rebellion Begins
The Tax Rebellion Begins : Personal Liberty Digest™
Maryland has much higher taxes than Virginia. Between 2007 and 2010, more than 40,000 residents escaped from Maryland to become Virginia residents. They took $2.17 billion with them.
Please neuter and spay your pets.... and your weird friends and relatives.

I recall a thread in which we discussed this some time ago, but my quick search didn't turn it up.
There was a net migration of tax filers from Maryland to Virginia between 2007 and 2010, but it wasn't as large as that quote suggests. People migrate back and forth between states as a matter of course, and for obvious reasons the migration with regard to Virginia is the largest component (of both inflow and outflow) of that migration for Maryland. It's the net migration that really matters, that's what might tell us something.
Between 2007 and 2010, a little over 39,000 filers (representing a little over 69,000 people) migrated from Maryland to Virginia. During that same time period, a little over 33,000 filers (representing a little under 58,000 people) migrated the other way. So the net migration between Maryland and Virginia was about 6,000 filers representing nearly 11,500 people - around 2,000 filers and 4,000 people per year. The net income migration was a little less than $400 million. Those totals were decreasing over that period though, i.e. the number of people and the amount of income was less from 2009 to 2010 than it was from 2007 to 2008.
For Maryland, the net state-to-state migration (i.e. considering migration to and from all other states and D.C.) over those 3 years was about 13,000 lost filers. But the same trend was apparent, the net migration loss was decreasing such that from 2009 to 2010 Maryland actually gained filers on-net (a little over a thousand) as a result of such migration (though the net income migration remained slightly negative).

You have it all wrong President Obama... The risk of death isn't the price we pay for liberty, the risk of death is the price we pay for life. The price we pay for liberty is being accountable for our own actions - that, and the burden of holding others individually accountable for theirs.
