New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released a report which chronicled the flight of taxpayers from the state from 2019 to 2021.

Taxpayer migration in 2020 was heavily shaped by the behavior of single filers, which accounted for over half of the net out-migration in 2020.

The rate of out-migration for single filers grew significantly in 2020, from -.08 percent in 2019 to-1.3 percent in 2020.

In 2021, total net out-migration levels declined, but remained higher relative to 2019.

The net out-migration rate was also higher at-0.41 percent than it was in 2019, when it was -0.31 percent.

In 2019, around 3 in every 1,000 resident taxpayers moved out of New York; in 2021, it was approximately 4 in every 1,000. In contrast, that rate was almost 12 in every 1000 resident taxpayers in 2020.

In 2020, the rates at which married, and head of household taxpayers (families) departed were nearly double those of the year prior. For heads of household, the rate remained the same in 2021. For married taxpayers, it declined but remained well above 2019 levels: one in every 100 resident married filers left New York in 2021.

The rates of out-migration were developed by the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance, OSC Analysis
