In 2022, Washington instituted a 7% capital gains tax.

Bezos' decision to move to Florida will likely save him $288 million so far, Yahoo Finance reports.

.

"Because Bezos has only ever bought a single share of Amazon," it's likely that he's had the stock, since the formation of the company, "and therefore virtually all of their value would be considered capital gains," according to 'Bloomberg.'.

According to Washington officials, capital gains tax brought in $855 million last year.

Over half of that amount came from only 10 people.

.

In March 2023, billionaire Ken Fisher said he would move from Washington to Texas.
