Truth be told, this is the last straw. Tesla will soon relocate its headquarters and future plans to Texas / Nevada. If we keep even the Fremont construction work going, it will depend on how we treat Tesla in the future. Tesla is the last remaining car manufacturer in the CA.

According to CNBC, quoting the billionaire’s “best friends and associates”, he is already considering moving to California.
The old adage that everything is big in Texas does not apply to taxes.
Texas has no state income tax, and California has 13.3 percent in the country.
In 2018, Tesla’s board approved a deal worth US $ 50 billion ($ 67.3 billion).
If he meets the performance goals of unlocking his bonus, he will face a total tax bill of about $ 9 billion in California tax rates.
The state is considering a “super tax” for high-income earners.
The Boring Company, another company owned by Tesla and Mr. Musk, operates in Austin, Texas.
SpaceX has extension facilities at Boca Chikka in the southern part of the state.

After offloading a number of properties and listing a number, he partially improved on the promise.
