Steven Isberg, professor in the University of Baltimore's Merrick School of Business, offered comments to WBFF-Fox 45 on news that Texas Gov. Rick Perry is urging Maryland businesses to relocate to Texas.

Isberg explained that businesses should consider more than a state's tax code when deciding where to set up shop.

"A lot of the taxes that a business will pay depends on the structure of the business itself," said Isberg, an associate professor of finance. "So when it comes to taxes, it's not just where you're located, it's what kind of business you are. What kind of business you do."
