In NYC, 5000 taxpayers pay 30% of the total income taxes collected.

I wonder how many of those 5000 plan to stay in NYC as the mayor plans to have them pay hundreds of milions or billions more in income taxes to pay for the 5,000,000 in NYC who pay next to nothing in income taxes?

The mayor needs to raise several billion more....and it won't be the lower income folks, who pay no income taxes now, that will be 'tapped' to cough up even more local taxes.
