    Russ - 

    Glad you liked the tax article!

    You are correct. IMPLAN is not accounting for the income tax levied on the workers that commute into the study area while they work in the study area - only the payroll taxes associated with those commuters, which are not personal taxes, will be collected and counted in the study area.  Note that the IMPLAN commuter rate may not be 15%. If you want to adjust what IMPLAN has as the default, check out the article Estimating Employee Compensation Adjustments for Known Commuting Rates.
