TAX WHAT YOU DON'T WANT, NOT WHAT YOU DO:

In "Live Free or Die" New Hampshire, The U.S. Looks For Tax Leadership (Travis Brown, 9/28/12, Forbes)

Using the Internal Revenue Service's taxpayer data files from the last fifteen tax years, we can see how New Hampshire has performed relative to its peer states. Between 1995 and 2010, New Hampshire has attracted more than $3.2 billion in net adjusted gross income (net AGI) than it has lost to rival states. This means that, on average, New Hampshire tends to gain $215 million in disposable income from working taxpayers each year -- mostly from top rivals such as Massachusetts, New York, and Connecticut.

It's all about user fees and charges.
