As I pointed out on another thread: years ago when NYC threatened a fractional cent tax on trades the NYSE reacted by declaring they'd flee the state if such a thing happened, even going so far as to buy land (in Connecticut IIRC) to prove they weren't bluffing.

I doubt any tariff/tax/fee that doesn't go directly to the NYSE will ever happen.
