Question
If I’m moving this month should I be paying taxes in the city I’m moving to or the one where I did the majority of my business in until now?

Answer
Congrats on the move. You'll pay taxes in the city where your income was generated. Generally, if you move on the 25th, all the income you made from the 1st to the 25th will be taxed by your old city and income you made on the 26th and after will be taxed by the new city. Different cities have different taxing rules, so be sure to check in with your new city.
