Default Very interesting information!

Well Im not sure why Im not quite sure what it means to the Texans, but i stumbled upon some information that seems relevant to the Texans offseason. Say what you want but the facts are Nate Clements and Michael Lewis have recently bought homes in Houston and from someone working on the promo reel for next season. It does not have one clip one highlight or one mention of David Carr..... Very Interesting indeed!! What say the Texans fans?

Clements and Lewis probably bought homes in Houston because there is no income tax in Texas. I don't think that they bought houses in Houston last year with the intentions of signing with the Texans this offseason.

Dream all you want, but that is most likely the reality of the situation.

They're also both from Houston. Clements is on record for being interested in playing here.....if the money's right.

Most players live in state with no state income tax so I would not read into too much. Clemments made some big comments about playing against VY as well saying how impressed he was with him. We are not reading much into that. I think Nate will go where the money is largest......see David Givens Houston native

I saw the "This is Football Country" season review DVD the Texans sent out. While it did show Carr's leap into the endzone against the Giants, I don't believe he was mentioned by the narrator by name. AJ, Dunta, DeMeco, and Mario were the players who were highlighted. What does that mean? Well, when was the last video the Texans produced that didn't feature David Carr?

Umm, David Carr is one of, if not the least popular Texan player right now. I think its an obvious marketing decision to focus on the popular guys like AJ, Meco, Drob and Mario.

It's an obvious marketing decision to focus on the guys who will be here next season.

Right on cue, with the start of the offseason come the posts full of speculation and misinfering.

I heard Carr bought a down jacket and snow boots. Could this mean he's moving somewhere with snow? Chicago? Green Bay? Probably not, but just maybe.

I dunno Tulexan, but are you saying that Clements, who earns all of his income and resides for much of the year in the state of NY can avoid the state income tax of NY if he buys a home in a non-IT state like TX on the theory that TX is his legal domicile ?

Yup. Bush senior did it for years and he only had an address at the Houston Club IIRC. It is based on where you claim your primary home. Have to go there a few times a year I think.

That would be correct. I do the same thing every year. He probably will have to pay the "luxery tax" I keep hearing about for very high wage earners.

I reject your reality and substitute my own.

I dunno........ If I cross the state line & work in Lousianna, they take Lousianna State Income tax out of my paycheck...... then I have to file at the end of the year....

But..... there's no way that Clements or Lewis could believe they'll be Texans next year.... & nobody buys a house on Wishful thinking.

Some states make you fill out a waiver. If you don't, thye take the tax out. Talk to your employer. La. and Kentucky are hard states to deal with, though.

If you earn money in that state you must pay their income tax. My wife does payroll for an international co. who is also in all 50 states. Ask an Astros player. If he plays a game in calif. he must pay income tax to Calif. It's not where you live but where you EARNED the money at.

I don't think you meant it like that...

Because that's like saying If I work for a company that sends me out of state to do work, then I'd have to pay said states income tax...

Isn't it supposed to be determined by where your job is located ?

You are absolutely correct. I work in La. and when I got hired, I signed a waiver to avoid paying La. state taxes.

Not all that surprising about Clements & Lewis buying houses in the Houston area. They get more bang for their buck down in this region when it comes to real estate.
