Don't worry about it.

I think whoever suggested that what the states really care about is those who earn big bucks in a quick visit was spot on. If all road warriors who live out of a suitcase magically started complying the states would quickly realize that it isn't worth the effort and would install some minimums at the request of their inundated revenue people.


I totally agree with Phil and it is admirable of him to acknowledge the reality of this situation. Unless you are making "really big bucks" like the top athletes the individual States have their hands full just trying to collect taxes from their legitimate fulltime residents. As a former state employee I can attest to this fact.
