Those monthly checks to NC Associates constitute taxable income. Now NC has lost that revenue.
That's the argument I made to all the politicians I contacted. I also pointed out that I have additional streams of revenue, so if I (as well as others) am forced to leave the state to protect that stream of revenue, the tax on those other streams of revenue will also be lost to the state.
Plus, that's 1,000 more vehicle trips belching exhaust that so many people seem concerned about these days.
Not only that, but that's 1000 more vehicle trips adding to the already congested roads slowing EVERYONE down that much more, which adds even more exhaust from the thousands of of other vehicles affected by the incremental increase from the 1000.
It's also that many more potential vehicle accidents- and those really DO use up a lot of government resources! Especially if one of those vehicle trips results in a death.
Oh, and guess what politicians- that death means even FEWER tax dollars coming into your state in the future because dead people don't generate revenue or buy things!
