Last Ditch Effort to Undo SALT Cap

(Washington)

It has largely faded from the news, but Americans in high tax states are feeling the pinch from the SALT cap limits. States are currently mounting a last ditch attempt to stop the new limit through a highly creative legal argument that relies on court precedent from as far back as the Civil War. However, early indications are that the push will fail, finally sounding a death knell for any hopes the cap would be overturned.

The bigger worry is that the tax-home migration of the wealthy could hollow out the public finances of already precarious state and local governments.
