    NY has a personal income tax, right?
    And personal property taxes?

    And workers at these corporations will patronize other businesses that do pay taxes, right?

    Even paying zero taxes, business moving to your locality is a huge win.

      Cutting corporate taxes to zero harms states, not helps them, whether you're talking targeted incentives or overall lower taxes.

      States need taxes to fund infrastructure and educating the workforce. Pushing all of that load onto individuals without correspondingly increasing their income is a way to suck money from people upwards to mainly already-wealthy shareholders. In other words, it just accelerates income and wealth inequality.
