RegentAtlantic to release a study on the impact taxes have on migration out of New Jersey 

In late February onj taxur firm will release an important study titled "Exodus on the Parkway: Are Taxes Driving Wealthy Residents out of New Jersey?" The goal of the study is to encourage a serious and objective dialogue toward addressing the challenges that New Jersey faces.


In conducting the study, RegentAtlantic consulted with former Governors, a former State Treasurer, the former Chairman of the NJ Council of Economic Advisors, a winner of the Noble Prize in Economics, as well as numerous public policy professionals, attorneys, and accountants. Some preliminary findings include:


  • The NJ Income Tax System incentivizes high income New Jersey workers to live in Pennsylvania. Over a twenty-five year period a high income wage earner could save $ 1.8 million by living in Pennsylvania compared to living in New Jersey.


  • If a New York City resident chooses to purchase an equivalently priced home in Greenwich Connecticut as opposed to in Summit New Jersey, an additional $3.7 million could be accumulated over a thirty year time period by investing the property tax savings.


  • Between 2004 and 2008 families with more wealth left New Jersey than migrated to New Jersey. The net loss of wealth to New Jersey was over $ 69 billion. This resulted in the loss of over $ 1.1 billion in net aggregate charitable contributions.


  • Trends project that the number of retirees receiving a New Jersey pension may exceed the number of workers contributing to the pension system


The study will be made available for you to view online at the end of February.
