8. in the 1950s though

there were a lot more small farms, most of which are probably now just classified as homes.

But states rely on regressive taxes like sales and property, and also their income taxes are often very flat.

And, of course, the states got worse in the 1990s as many legislatures and Governors pushed for regressive tax cuts.
