What evidence do you have that he did not pay his taxes? He seems to think he paid $13k/day. And in May and June, when he was behind the "coup"? in Albany, some newspapers seemed to think he was from upstate. If you note the last article, he has donated considerably more over many years in NYS than he ever paid in income taxes here. I would expect that in the future, he will find it more interesting to donate in Florida rather than upstate.
Your writer should get his facts straight before putting pen to paper. golisano is a NY resident, and has lived in upstate (do you even knbow where that is) for many, many years. He created a successful company that has created thousand of paying jobs in the Rochester area, and he regularly donates money to charity such as adding a children's wing to a local hospital and buying computers for all the students in a Catholic high school. He has said he will move to Florida from NY, not to avoid his "fair share", but because the writer's friends implemented a tax increase just for people in his tax bracket.
