I do know that playing in a state with no state income tax is a plus for players. However I seem to remember that there are issues with players paying taxes in the states they play away games in and in canada as well, so it may not affect their entire salary.
Im sure its complicated and I'd hate to have to be the accountant figuring it all out...
