Tort reform area with minimal risk of litigation based on CNMI laws. One of the lowest tax burdens in the U.S.: If in the CNMI 183 days or more during the tax year (and otherwise meets requirements), then CNMI residency status is met for that year. As a result, earnings are taxed at the maximum CNMI (xe2x80x9cstatexe2x80x9d) tax rate of 9% and there is a 90% rebate of U.S. federal income tax on income earned within the CNMI. If in the CNMI less than 183 days, the IRS taxes the income earned within the CNMI the same as U.S. mainland earnings for federal income tax purposes. No sales tax. What this means for residents is that we do not file with the U.S. IRS, but only with Tax and Revenue here on island. After-tax amount retained on a $190,000 salary here is roughly the equivalent to that of a $287,880 salary in New York or San Francisco. Add to that the fact that there is no sales tax in the CNMI.
