It's where you earn the money that counts. For example, my daughter works in an industry where welders are hired routinely. They are all based in Texas, and live in Texas. When they go to a job site in Oklahoma, and earn their income over the course of, say six weeks, that six weeks worth of income is subject to Oklahoma income taxes, regardless of the fact that the individual lives in Texas. The income was earned within the state, and the state expects to collect the taxes due. Part of my daughter's job is to get everything set up with each state so income taxes are withheld while those employees are earning their income in that particular state.
...but even before the law, there were rich people in blue states trying this strategy. Some actually moved, while some just pretended to—and that’s where state tax auditors come in. Officials in places such as California and New York don’t make it easy for the rich to say goodbye, with investigators who dig deep, forcing residents to prove they really have cut ties in favor of cheaper pastures.
Just check out number 3 jersey sales yesterday.

At least he's paying his taxes, the biggest scam in pro sports is when a team boondoggles a new publicly or semi-publicly funded stadium out of a city along with sweetheart tax deals under the mistaken premise that it is a net revenue generator overall. Studies have shown this is erroneous, let billionaires pay for their own damn stadiums.
