The idea of limiting an American citizen's travel proactively, on the assumption that she or he will end up fighting with ISIS based on documents or web postings, scrapes at liberty, even if the tools are there and it is legal to use them.

In my more than 25 years of helping individuals and businesses navigate the complexities of state and local taxes, I have found there to be one constant: States are very welcoming to new residents but make it extremely difficult for them to leave.
