STUDY: Texas was big winner in interstate migration; NY was last place

August 21, 2013 in Uncategorized by Randy Block  |  No Comments

 

Texas was one of the big winners in the interstate movement of people and their related income in the last decade, according to new data from the Tax Foundation.

 

When a person moves to a new state, his or her income is added to all other incomes in that state. That helps the new state’s total taxable income and hurts the overall income in the state that the person left.

 

Florida benefited the most from this migration, with newcomers bringing a net $67.3 billion of adjusted gross income from 2000 to 2010. Arizona was No. 2 ($17.7 billion) and Texas was No. 3 ($17.6 billion).

New York saw the biggest decline in personal income (-$45.6 billion) from 2000 to 2010 due to migration out of the state, followed by California (-$29.4 billion) and Illinois (-$20.4 billion).

I’m quoted in the recent issue of Texas Lawbook.

January 24, 2013 in Uncategorized by Randy Block  |  No Comments

“Randy Block, a Dallas headhunter who owns Performance Legal Placement, said that the almost-even balance between promoted litigators and transactional lawyers is an indication of a strong legal economy in Texas in 2012 and the year to come.”

“ ‘The fact that it’s 31-26 is unique to Texas because around the country transactional attorneys were laid off in the recession or could not get a high quantity of billable hours that are necessary to be made partner in eight or nine years,” Block said. “The fact that in Texas people are being made partner in very similar numbers from transaction to litigation shows the strength of the Texas legal market.’ ”

Which Cities Give Young Lawyers the Biggest Bang for Their Buck?  Above the Law writes: “How you like me now?” asked every associate in Texas, a state with two major cities in the top five spots (and no state income tax). It is now painfully obvious that it’s no longer financially viable to live in New York City, so it may be time to consider transferring to (or starting your career at) another office — your wallet will thank you.
