(The Center Square) – New migration data from the Internal Revenue Service shows Florida added 245,334 residents in 2022, the most among states.

The total inflow, not adjusted against those leaving the state, was 466,210 in 2022 as 277,527 tax filers with a combined adjusted gross income of $26.6 billion decamped to Florida.

That’s a 3.23% percentage improvement compared to 2021, when the state gained 451,633 new residents with a combined adjusted gross income of $18.97 billion and 1.3 million residents moving to the state in the last three years.

There were 466,040 new residents in 2020, bringing with them more than $17.7 billion in adjusted gross revenue.

Florida gained the most residents from New York (88,344), Georgia (43,402), California (42,412), New Jersey (41,412) and Texas (37,777).

The data shows that the state that was the biggest destination for Floridians leaving the state was Georgia at 48,301, followed by Texas (38,873), North Carolina (33,289), New York (28,134) and Tennessee (21,485).

California was the biggest loser according to the data, losing more than 307,000 residents worth more than $23 billion in adjusted gross income to other states. New York (lost more than 222,700 residents) was next, followed by Illinois (87,286), Massachusetts (45,259) and New Jersey (37,408).

Regionally, Florida’s neighbors also grew, with Georgia adding 50,969 new residents with a combined adjusted gross income of $705 million and Alabama with 22,432 additions worth $793 million.

Other data shows the same trend of Florida growing its population at the expense of other states.
