Arizona gained 80,033 more people from tax-filing families than it lost to other states – mostly from California – gaining billions of dollars in income in the process. The Internal Revenue Service tracks interstate migration using tax filings that show how many dependents moved with each taxpayer. After subtracting the number of outgoing residents, the state gained 80,033 taxpayers and their dependents that filed in 2019 in another state but filed as an Arizona resident in 2020. That amounts to a 1.1% increase in the state’s total population, according to IRS data released on May 24.

The IRS also accumulates the adjusted gross income of those taxpayers that moved. The 42,552 more taxpayers that moved to Arizona than left bring with them $4,800,358,000 in AGI. Of all 50 states, seven saw larger income increases. Idaho, which had seen an outsized migration of Californians, gained the largest percentage of population as well as percentage of AGI. While Arizona saw new resident taxpayers from every state, the vast majority of incoming population migrated from California. Arizona saw a net gain of 37,772 taxpayers and their dependents from the Golden State.

Arizona has seen a significant increase in population and income due to migration from other states, particularly California. This has resulted in a net gain of 37,772 taxpayers and their dependents, bringing in an additional $4,800,358,000 in adjusted gross income. Arizona is one of seven states that saw larger income increases, with Idaho seeing the largest percentage of population and income growth.

Arizona was the second-most popular for outgoing Californians, with 63,098 filers and their families heading for the border.
