Will the last high earner to leave New York please turn out the lights?

The governor has agreed to raise the state’s existing personal income tax rate from 8.82 percent to 9.65 percent on incomes of just over $1 million for individuals and $2 million for joint-filing couples; 10.3 percent on incomes of $5 million; and 10.9 percent on incomes of $25 million or more.

Raising the state tax bite by up to 24 percent — an average of more than $500,000 a year for the 1,786 New York City households in the $10 million bracket, based on 2018 data — could provide a final push out the door for an unknown number of high earners.
