A new analysis of IRS data reveals the mass migration of Americans from blue states to red states and the significant ramifications as a result of the widespread resettlement.
Wirepoints – an Illinois-based economic research company – analyzed migration data released by the IRS for 2020. The Internal Revenue Service information divulged that not only was there a mass migration from red states to blue states, but the re-settlers took with them tremendous wealth from Democrat-controlled states to Republican ones.
The analysis of IRS data found that Florida attracted 624,000 new residents in 2020 and the state garnered more than $41.1 billion in Adjusted Gross Income (AGI). The Sunshine State gained $23.7 billion in net new taxable income in 2020 from the influx of new residents – an increase of 3.3% of the state’s total AGI compared to 2019.
Texas enjoyed an inpouring of new residents from other states with a net income increase of $6.3 billion. Arizona benefitted with a $4.8 billion gain, North Carolina had a net gain of $3.8 billion, and South Carolina increased by $3.6 billion.
Democratic-controlled states suffered a mass exodus of residents and taxable income. New York lost a whopping $19.5 billion in net income in 2020 after 250,000 people fled the state. California took a licking as 263,000 residents flocked to other states – which resulted in a net income loss of $17.8 billion. Illinois suffered a decrease of $8.5 billion in net income in 2020, while Massachusetts lost $2.6 billion, and New Jersey hemorrhaged $2.3 billion. u201cA 50-state survey: New 2020 IRS domestic migration data reveals #Florida is the biggest winner, #New York the biggest loser, in the competition for people and their wealth.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
