Trump Will Avoid State Income Taxes After Declaring Florida Residency

HeadlineNov 01, 2019

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump have filed a “declaration of domicile,” declaring their permanent residence to be the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida. They were previously listed as residing at Trump Tower in New York City, where Donald Trump has been a lifelong resident. The New York Times cited an official close to Trump who said the move was primarily for tax purposes. Florida residents pay no state income taxes. In a tweet, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo wrote, “Good riddance. It’s not like Donald Trump paid taxes here anyway… He’s all yours, Florida.”
