of states with no income taxes, so there is no comparison in the article posed between CA, IL, NY, and, say, Texas or Florida. The eyes would pop out if you made Machado a NY resident and then had him choosing between the Yankees and the Rangers. An old boss of mine moved from Wisconsin to Texas and got a 10% increase in take-home pay with no change in salary.

The D.C. exemption is interesting. Who was it put in for - politicians?
