Too bad the state that you have called home for so many years has decided to tax the living crap out of everyone and everything. You may want to take a look around to see where in this great country of ours you could relocate.
I know that Texas, Virginia, south Dakota, and Nebraska are all courting you, and I would like to throw another hat into that ring: Idaho. I do not know how our tax rates compare with those other states, but I do know that we are a right to work state, which means that you do not have to let the UAW tell you how it is going to be anymore. Listening to them leads to big trouble, just look at the Big-3.
Anyways, while you are looking around, please give us a looksie. Here in Idaho, we have a very willing workforce. Have you ever heard the Red Wing Boots commercial? That is us. We are also rated the most honest state in the union and one of the top 10 states for happiness and well being. In other words this is a great place to live and do business. Don't forget we are also a big Ag state. Something that you might like.
