More Millionaires Prefer North Dakota

North Dakota is home to an increasing number of millionaires.

People reporting income of more than $1 million went up 7.5 percent last year.
1,120 taxpayers reported adjusted gross income of more than $1 million in 2014, compared with 1,041 North Dakotans in that category in 2013.

The number of North Dakotans reporting seven-figure incomes has more than doubled since 2010.

The Tax Department says the increase is largely due to payments to mineral owners by oil companies.
