Florida Top State $200,000 Household Income Relocating


First thing lets define two words, immigration is when folks from other countries and relocate to the United States, migration is when people relocate within the United States.  I read an interesting article about household income families making $200,000 and where are they moving.  Florida is in first place almost four times more than second place Texas.  Why?  Let’s start with the weather which was a big reason I moved here, lower taxes are always a good reason plus many decided to move during or right after the pandemic.  Remote working, I believe has added to the migration as why live where you work or live where after work is important.

Here are the numbers for the top 10 states which is based on tax returns file in 2019 and new locations in 2020:

  1. Florida – 20,263
  2. Texas – 5,356
  3. Arizona – 5,268
  4. North Carolina – 4,713
  5. South Carolina – 3,967
  6. Tennessee – 2,743
  7. Colorado – 2,624
  8. Nevada – 2,331
  9. Idaho – 2,055
  10. Utah – 1,503
