CFO Magazine Tax Survey

CFO Magazine has published its annual State Tax Survey which “aims to capture tax executives’ impressions about differing tax environments, and the results are driven by those opinions.” Not surprisingly, California ranks 49th or 50th out of 50 in five out of six survey questions. Here are the nifty graphics:

Despite all of the budget problems, our political leaders continue to talk a lot about the need for job creation and economic development. This study should be sobering. Businesses will make decisions about building, relocating and hiring based on these impressions, so even political talk about tax increases and policies unfriendly to business can drive jobs away even if those policies are not ultimately adopted.
