This article demonstrates that state income tax rates are quite different from one state to the next. The treatment of taxable income and deductible losses also varies. A taxpayer may take advantage of these differences by using the income stripping strategy to shift income and losses between two states. Whether income and losses are transferable is disputed among taxpayers and the state governments. This disagreement centers on the physical presence and economic nexus standards. In addition, this article scrutinizes what is taxable and deductible in a state, including the policies of "net income tax" and "gross income tax". Losses are deductible under the former, but not the latter. Further, under the "gross income tax" policy, income must be classified into six distinctive categories. Losses offset gains only if both fall into the same category. These differences give rise to many tax planning strategies. From the above developments, this article offers the guiding principles for engaging in an income stripping strategy
