The personal-finance website WalletHub released its 2017 Tax Burden by State report.

New Yorkers will be happy to know they pay their fair share – and some of everyone else’s share too.

WalletHub’s analysts compared 50 states based on three components of state tax burden — property taxes, individual income taxes, and sales and excise taxes — as a share of total personal income.
New York – with its Democrat rule – beat out the competition and is proud to announce it forces its residents to pay the most of any residents in any state.
States with Highest Tax Burdens (%) States with Lowest Tax Burdens (%)
1 New York (12.94%) 41 Montana (7.51%)
2 Hawaii (11.27%) 42 Wyoming (7.29%)
3 Vermont (10.75%) 43 Alabama (7.19%)
4 Maine (10.73%) 44 South Dakota (7.12%)
5 Minnesota (10.24%) 45 Florida (6.79%)
6 Connecticut (10.23%) 46 New Hampshire (6.70%)
7 New Jersey (10.14%) 47 Oklahoma (6.61%)
8 Rhode Island (10.09%) 48 Tennessee (6.45%)
9 Illinois (10.00%) 49 Alaska (6.27%)
10 California (9.52%) 50 Delaware (5.59%)

downloadKey Stats
