Sheesh!

Now they are going after sellers for sales that happened before the law was approved?
It's California, so should come as no surprise.  We are the state that loves to tax the hell out of everything and everybody!

Evidenced by the fact that, although there are standing studios where movies can be filmed in California, everyone goes to Georgia or New Zealand to film their productions. It was literally cheaper to build a replica of the Bates Motel in a tax friendlier area than it was to actually film the dreadful Bates Motel TV show...at the actual Bates Motel,lol.

 I'll pay more taxes to live in the greatest state in the union. We are the 5th biggest economy in the world. Anyone who isn't happy here is free to move to some dirtbowl somewhere else.

Unfortunately you aren't reflective of all of California's residents. That's why all the movie people run outta town, or even outta country to make as much money as they can. And then keep it. Heck, they don't even care if a movie makes money in America anymore. If it will make money in Calcutta, Mars, or Tazmania....it's good enough,lol. Money, Money, Money....a gift from the Invisible Man!

Well, I think the tax bill was basically a mistake - like some of the huge utility bills that get reported in the news from time to time.

Anywho…  California taxes really aren't out of line.  This is a 900 mile long state that has modern freeways that have to be built, maintained, widened after time, etc.  Much of our highways cross land that no one occupies.  We have lots of desert, farmland, mountains, etc. that has to be traversed to tie the state together. 

Wages are high, but jobs are plentiful.  Lots of people move here for their careers - then retire to the states of their birth because real estate is so much cheaper.  They didn't stay there their whole life because there was not enough work.  We don't have yearly tornadoes, hurricanes and flooding - but we do have our fires and occasional earthquakes.  (Actually, we have earthquakes all the time, but they are so small that no one feels them.)
 
I don't consider any of our states dirtbowls. But if the lower tax areas are so attractive, why doesn't everyone move there to live full time?

There are lots of factors besides tax that make people live where they do.  I have lived my whole life in Southern California.  But I have driven all around our beautiful country.  The Southern states have a lot of charm, but I couldn't handle the annual outdoor sauna of their summers - or the vampiric dragonflies they call mosquitos.

Sorry, I guess I was less than artful in my wording. To put it nicely, I'll pay whatever taxes are asked to not have to live in a meth-fueled, inbred hillbilly, Ma & Pa Kettle state. New York, California, Washington state....you can keep the other 47. I think thats a bit more polite to the fly-over states.
