There are a few tax loop holes
Mortgage interest deduction
If you bought a home recently you got a $7000 tax credit
Property tax deduction
Just to name a few items
It's really not that bad unless your rich but then again if your rich you can afford it
The best way to enjoy California is to turn off the news get up early in the morning and live the dream
Funny thing about those dreams. Most turn out to be nightmares. California is a nightmare. Not the State mind you. Just those who are the residents.
Like all States, there is much beauty to be proud of. Too bad so many Californians live there!
This is backwards. California, Connecticut ,New York, and the other high tax states also give more in taxes to the feds than they receive. Those who drain the federal coffers are mostly in those fiercely independent red states.
Rich Californians can, pretty much, move to wherever they want to. I sure wouldn't want to live in a progressive socialist state like California. Is California still bankrupt? Maybe the Liberal Movie Industry can chip in more to help the Human Condition in California.
