Visualizing Unequal State Tax Burdens Across America
Data shows that low and middle-income families pay a much greater share of their income towards state and local taxes than wealthy families.
This visualization uses data from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP) to map the effective tax rates—or taxes paid as a share of family income—across income groups at the state and local level.
