What do you think of Sean Payton moving to Dallas?

So it appears as though much hay has been made over Sean Payton wanting to raise his family in North Texas and not New Orleans. Here is my take on the matter: Sean Payton is the best thing that ever happened to the New Orleans Saints and I think that we as fans would be silly to alienate him over wanting to raise his family somewhere else. Three playoff runs out of five years as head coach and a Super Bowl victory to boot automatically make him one of the very best coaches in the NFL today.

We must also keep in mind that Sean Payton lived in Dallas for three years before arriving in New Orleans and even inquired about keeping his home base in Dallas when he was negotiating for the Saints' post. I say this: as long as he remains effective as our head coach, who are we to criticize him over where he wants to raise his family?

Scott van Pelt made a great observation on his show today. There are no state taxes in Texas. If he maintains a Texas based home as a primary residence (ie. kids in school and such) his tax savings would be huge.

He still has to pay Louisiana Income Tax due his employer being located in Louisiana.

I doubt he's leaving the Saints anytime soon. Maybe when the Saints championship window closes he leaves for a front office job in Dallas, but the Saints window is a long way from being over,

Look, I love Louisiana. Most of my family are native to the State. But I can only take so much of NOLA. No offense to the current folks who reside there. However, if you didn't grow up there, it's a little much to deal with.

Actually, his employer is incorporated in Texas.

New Orleans Saints Football in Metairie, LA is a private company categorized under Football Clubs. Our records show it was established in 1985 and incorporated in Texas. Current estimates show this company has an annual revenue of $20 to 50 million and employs a staff of approximately 100 to 249.

I would think a loop-hole most likely appears if the corporation you work for is incorporated Texas and your principal residence is Texas. It has been several years since I studied tax law, but there is probably a very defensible precedent.

I read elsewhere that since the check is cut in Louisiana, it counts as Louisiana income. Not sure if thats correct, but its what I read.

Checks can be cut anywhere. Many corporations outsource payroll services. Workers in Colorado, commuting from Wyoming, could be getting paid working for a Michigan firm with payments coming from a California bank on checks generated at a New Jersey human resources firm.

Lots of gray involved.
