Florida. We pay state property taxes in Missouri. Florida is one of the states that do not. That right there gives him an additional $1.5 million. Lots of people think he wants to go back home to Toronto, but his wife is from the St. Louis area. If you've been married for any substantial length of time and you're a gentleman, you likely already know Mrs. Petro will have some input.
When Petro sits down to talk with his wife about a possible move out of St. Louis, he gets to say, "Honey, we can go to Toronto where it is colder longer and we'll have to pay about 50% of my salary to the Canadian government while I play for a playoff-level team." Or, "Honey, we can move to Florida where the sun, beach, and shopping is. There are also many direct flights back home to St. Louis that are available along with the fact that we'll actually make out like bandits regarding the fat salary that I'm getting ready to get paid. Add to that, I'll still play for a playoff-level team."
How would your wife reply?
