What tax increase can I expect by moving to NYC from NJ

Resolved Question:

I currently live and work in NJ and am considering a move to NYC, but I am weary of it due to the taxes, more specifically the city tax in Manhattan. With a salary of $175K how much of my income can I expect to disappear due to the city tax?

Note that the below figures are fair estimate of the tax liability-


Presuming that you file as Single in NJ with no other deductions considered - your NJ state tax for income of $175K will be $8,900 appx.


Presuming similar situation in NY - your tax liabilty will be $17,400 (this will include appx.$5800 in NY City tax)
