Post-election update of Rider “CA vs. other states” fact sheet

Thursday, November 8, 2012

Salient excerpt from my post-election CA fact sheet:

Prior to Prop 30 passing, CA already had the second worst state income tax in the nation. Currently our 9.3% tax bracket starts at $48,029 for people filing as individuals.  Now our “millionaires’ tax” rate is 13.3% – including capital gains.  Increased taxes now start at $250K.

CA now has by far the nation’s highest state income tax rate.  We are 21% higher than the second highest state (Hawaii), 34% higher than the third highest (Oregon), and a heck of a lot higher than all the rest – including 7 states with zerostate income tax. Tables #11 & 13

We are so bad, CA also has the second highest state income tax bracket.  AND the third.  And the fifth and seventh.
