Trump, Lifelong New Yorker, Declares Himself a Resident of Florida

Trump, Lifelong New Yorker, Declares Himself a Resident of Florida

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/31/us/politics/trump-new-york-florida-primary-residence.html

The president filed a “declaration of domicile” last month saying that his property in Palm Beach will be his permanent residence.

He came of age in Queens, built Trump Tower, starred in “The Apprentice,” bankrupted his businesses six times, and drew cheering crowds and angry protesters to Fifth Avenue after his election. Through it all, President Trump — rich, bombastic and to many Americans the epitome of a New Yorker — was intertwined with the city he called his lifelong home.

No longer.

In late September, Mr. Trump changed his primary residence from Manhattan to Palm Beach, Fla., according to documents filed with the Palm Beach County Circuit Court. Melania Trump, the first lady, also changed her residence to Palm Beach in an identical document.

Each of the Trumps filed a “declaration of domicile” saying that the Mar-a-Lago Club, Mr. Trump’s resort in Palm Beach, will be their permanent residence.

5. There is no state income tax in FL.

So it's a little odd he didn't do this years ago. Of course, there is the possibility he wasn't paying tax in NY.

8. "Escape From New York"

I wonder how this impacts New York's legal case against the Trump Organization?

10. Your primary residence in Florida is exempt from bankruptcy.

It can't be touched if you file personal bankruptcy.

12. Bingo

Fine. Let him sit there and drool and watch the sea rise around his big-ass, empty house.

18. But it's not exempt from hurricanes and and storm surge due to global warming!

He got lucky so far this year, but there is no guarantee that a property on such vulnerable land is going to be around for much longer.

Also, 90% of New Yorkers despise him. He could never go back there. He's going to eventually have to end up living in Russia.

New York is after him in a big way.

23. That has no bearing. NY can still charge him for offenses committed in NY no matter which state he

lives in. All that matters is he is out of office.

21. His lawyers must have advised him...

...to do so. Think it may also be linked to the sale of the lease of his hotel in DC. Who wants to bet he's also breaking up his company a bit further quietly, adding shell companies, putting in contingencies that transfer ownership, etc., makes it harder to go after his assets.
