Since several states have no income taxes like FL, TN and Texas for example, I have several thoughts and questions.
Would TB, Miami, Jax, Dallas, Houston not be at a significant advantage in resigning their own players and FA's than the teams in CA for instance, where the state income tax is 13.3%. The obvious answer is yes since an $8 million per year WR contract in Oakland or SF is worth less than a $7 million per year contract in the aforementioned states.
This brings up several questions.
Why did the Dolphins offer sooooo much for Suh?
Do agents get paid based on the income taxes of the states where they get their clients contracts?
Why would any team want to go to Los Angeles if this is going to be a constant battle
Do I understand more why the Raiders always overpay?
It seems the majority of state income taxes range from the 4-6% range, but still better than the 13.3% in CA.
I might have this all wrong, if so, just have a mod delete the whole thing as I am on my way to FL
