One possibility is Texas, where the personal income-tax rate is zero, compared to 13.3 percent for top California earners.

"We have had a 10-fold increase from various parts of California, particularly Los Angeles and the Bay Area where many people are seeking a way to leave the state," said Ashley, who lives just over the California state line in Lake Tahoe, Nev..
