I forget what it was (I think one has something to do with applying your trade in the state), or how much they had to pay, but Alex Rodriguez loses millions of dollars because of it.
Those are called "jock taxes" and they're pretty ridiculous, IMO. I think the BoH board here has had a few threads on it.
