Who Pays? A Distributional Analysis of Tax Systems in all 50 States
November 19, 2009
This state-by-state report from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy analyzes how much of a share different income groups pay in state and local taxes. Updating a 1996 report, this edition shows the distributional impact of state and local tax systems in 2002, and how the regressivity of these systems changed during the 1990s.
*November 18, 2009 (Update) – ITEP issued a new Who Pays? report in November 2009, which is available here. Tax levels in the 2003 report are not comparable to those in the new version because of a variety of methodological changes in the way taxes and income are computed.
