South Carolina State Senator Proposes 'Yankee tax' For Northerners Moving There

• By Cassandra MacD

State Sen. Stephen Goldfinch's bill, "The Yankee Tax," would require people moving from other states to pay $500.

"If passed by state referendum, new residents moving from out-of-state to South Carolina would be required to pay two one-time fees, $250 for new driver's licenses and $250 for vehicle registrations," Fox Business reports.

The politician told Fox News that his legislation is not to discourage people from moving there but for new residents to "catch up with the rest of us."

"I'm not trying to build a wall and this is not a fee against new residents it's a fee for people to catch up with the rest of us," Goldfinch said.
