Leaving the glorious Republic of Texas behind. My family has been here for 7 generations. My grandfathers grandfather was a Lt. in the Texas cavalry.

 

The opportunity is too good to pass up. If everything goes as planned in four years Ill be maing more money than anyone in my family ever has.

 I already know Ill be walking into a vipers nest of crazy liberal bull shit. I also know Ill be paying twice as much for half the house.

 My initial question has to do with vehicle registration. From what I understand I will have to pay the state of California additional sales tax for a truck that I bought in Texas and was already taxed for. Is this right?

Also can I just register my vehicle right before I leave TX and put dealing with the CDMV for a year?

Moved here last year from New England.

Yeah you're gonna have to pay taxes on your truck again.

 

Depending on the industry you're in a lot of the crazy liberal shit can be avoided on a day to day basis.  Obviously the larger policy decisions will affect you, but the people I actually interact with aren't so bad.

There are still lots of red areas here in CA. If you are headed to the Bay Area RIP.

People are people, it's not much different. When i lived in Cali people were much friendler than New York. Many many Mexicans but most are friendly. Theres so much to do there and the weathers near perfect, you live for the whole year no hibernating in winter.

If you have money it's an amazing place. If you're penniless the state will take care of you. If you're middle class you will get taxed heavy enough to be completely penniless and you will hate it here. Moral of the story is either make a fuckton of money or just don't work at all.

I work in La Jolla several months a year, and it's just lovely. A little brown for my taste (and no underbrush) but there's no complaining about the weather, the food, or the (female) scenery.

I think your undestanding of their property pricing is a little off.  If you are worried about vehicle tax, wait till you see the state, city, county, sales, and every other tax they load you up with. 

That record high salary may not result in much of a real increase in your wallet, and you'll be in commiefornia.

I’m paying 1600 a month to live in a slum about an hour away from SF.

The drive is no change as it takes an hour to get anywhere in Houston.

The slum is no change as I live a block away from Sheila Jackson Lees district at the moment.

I speak enough Spanish to get by. It’s just something you learn in Texas like riding a horse and shooting a gun.

 

I allegedly do own some guns that would get me “pound me in the ass” prison time in CA. I’ll be leaving all of my magazines with family and have purchased California legal mags. Having everything else smithed. This is one of the stupidest things ever. I’m paying a guy to custom make little plastic shields so I can’t wrap my thumbs around my assault grip rifles. Ridiculous.

depends how new the car/truck is

you'll still get fucked on registration fee's..

you'll also pay high state income tax

you should really try to convince them to let you work from home in tx

BULLSHIT

I did everything I could to stay in TX, even working for free to try to get in with the right people. Its a budget situation. I have to go where there is a budget to pay me.

Its only a 4 year deal and then Ill be moving somewhere else. Could be anywhere.

How much more money are you going to make?  Does it offset what you will lose with cost of living in commiefornia?

Just be ready for everything costing more. We have gas tax, state income tax, and sales tax. Pretty much everything costs more besides property taxes and insurance. You will likely get raped harder on your federal income taxes as well.
