I'm not familiar with CA tax law so I won't challenge Phil's original statement. I've heard he could definitely save money moving to another state and that is probably true. But I suspect part of the reason for his gentler tone is a wife, kids, father, mother, and in-laws telling him CA is home and they aren't going to leave.

Also remember that athletes who compete all over the country and the world face a tax nightmare regardless of where they live. Most states will tax them on their earnings in that state. Then they have to hope they get some relief from their home state for the taxes paid elsewhere. Guess being Phil's accountant could be quite lucrative but might also drive you crazy.
