Bloomberg: Florida, The Winner As The Wealthy Move South

According to a Bloomberg analysis of state-to-state moves based on data from the IRS and the U.S. Census Bureau, Florida saw a net influx of nearly 3% of the state’s adjusted gross income in 2016.

South Carolina, Idaho and Oregon also posted large gains, while the biggest declines were recorded by Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey.

The U.S. Census Bureau reports that about 10% of the population – about 35 million people – moves annually, usually within the same county, though about 5 million Americans move from one state to another.

“Florida’s powerhouse economy continues to churn out new jobs, retiree migration to Florida is on the rise, and millennials are coming into their prime home-buying years,” says Florida Realtors Chief Economist Brad O’Connor.

Migration also brings more money into Florida than it moves out. The average gross income of people moving to Florida from 10 states and Washington, D.C., exceeded $100,000, outstripping those of Florida natives who migrated to the reciprocal states.

The Sunshine State also benefits from a provision of the federal tax law that imposes a lower cap on state and local tax deductions – one of seven states that collect no income tax.
