AZ Business Leader Invites Tax-Averse Phil Mickelson To Relocate

The Copper State is rather less predatory than its neighbor

One of Arizona's top business leaders has written Phil Mickelson asking him to move here after the San Diego-based professional golfer complained about California income tax hikes on the wealthy.

Mickelson, whose net worth is estimated at about $180 million, complained and later backtracked on the Golden State's new 13.3 percent tax rate on millionaires.

Tiger Woods even commented on the dust up, saying one reason he moved to Florida is because the Sunshine State doesn't have any income taxes at all.
