Negotiating a new contract and they are asking for my "home" location in the USA so they can calculate cost of living and quality of living allowances. As I have not lived in the USA for over a decade, I can make the case that my "home" could be several cities (San Francisco, CA; Palo Alto, CA; Ann Arbor, MI; Bellingham, WA.). For this calculation (and for the total expat package) I assume it would be better to pick the expensive city (ie. SF), but will this bite me later in tax equalization considerations (CA has tax, WA does not).
