Who Pays (the taxes) - a report by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy

http://www.itep.org/whopays/


Released January 14th, 2015

Who Pays?, A Distributional Analysis of the Tax Systems in All Fifty States (the fifth edition of the report), assesses the fairness of state and local tax systems by measuring the state and local taxes that will be paid in 2015 by different income groups as a share of their incomes. The report examines every state and the District of Columbia. It discusses important features of each state’s tax system and includes detailed state-by-state profiles that provide essential baseline data to help lawmakers understand the effect tax reform proposals will have on constituents at all income levels.

Executive Summary

Full Report

Press Release (PDF)



there is an interactive map on this page which shows the rate of the state and local taxes as a percent of family income paid by each quintile and breaks the top quintile into "next 15" percentiles, the next 4 percentiles and the top 1 percentile.

It shows when you take into account the local and state taxes along with federal income taxes - our system of taxation is regressive.

1. TX, FL, LA, KS -- the usual suspects -- are among the very worst ...

so are SD, IL, and IN.

DE and MN look pretty good.
