Carl Icahn Is Moving From NY To Florida For Lower Tax Rates

Bloomberg, Carl Icahn Is Heading to Florida for Lower Tax Rates:

Billionaire Carl Icahn is planning to move his home and business to Florida to avoid New York’s higher taxes, according to people familiar with the matter.

Icahn, 83, who was born in the Far Rockaway neighborhood in Queens, New York, has been an icon on Wall Street for decades. In the 1990s, he bought a mansion in the exclusive Indian Creek island enclave on Biscayne Bay in Miami.

The move is scheduled for March 31 and employees who don’t do so won’t have a job, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the matter was private.

A guy who has more vastly money than he can spend in the short remainder of his life is uprooting his life because he is mad he has to pay any state-level taxes. Such is the level of civic obligation today.
