Encyclopedia > State tax levels

State tax levels indicate both the tax burden and the services a state can afford to provide residents.


States use a different combination of sales, income, and excise taxes, and user fees, some imposed directly on residents and other imposed indirectly. This table ranks the states of the United States on a per capita basis.
