"People have strongly considered moving to other states," - Laura Nickolay, CPA, CFP®

Laura Nickolay, CPA, CFP®, was relied upon by InvestmentNews for an article on the new tax reform law. The article focuses on how some Americans are surprised to find that their tax refunds are not as large as they anticipated. Furthermore, for those who owe tax many were surprised to find they owed more than anticipated.

Laura speaks to how many people did not connect the higher paycheck they were receiving on account of a lower withholding to a lower refund or more taxes owed.

In high tax states, the impact can be significant. "People have strongly considered moving to other states," she asserts.
