Senate Majority to Phil Mickelson: Consider Income Tax Free Florida
The Florida Senate majority office has invited golfer Phil Mickelson to consider Florida after criticizing the growing taxes he pays in California.
“We hear you on taxes! Florida has no income tax & some of the world's best golf courses,” the Senate majority office tweeted to Mickelson on Tuesday.
On Sunday, Mickelson said he will need to make “dramatic changes” because of the taxes he faces due to the voter-approved Proposition 30 that hikes California’s income tax rate from 10.3 percent to 13.3 percent on those making more than $1 million a year, while his federal tax bracket grows from 35 percent to 39.6 percent.
"There are going to be some drastic changes for me because I happen to be in that zone that has been targeted both federally and by the state and, you know, it doesn't work for me right now. So I'm going to have to make some changes," Mickelson was quoted.
