Can we rename this to United States state tax levels please? Other states (Poland, Andhra Pradesh) also have tax levels that we might otherwise want to include here. 20:53, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Good idea. Done.EECavazos 21:01, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Accuracy of figures[edit]

According to the US Census Bureau page [States Ranked by Total Taxes and Per Capita Amount: 2004 (Amounts are in thousands. Per capita amounts are in dollars. Revised March 2006)

] they are way off. Where did these figures come from? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:03, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Good Article, but[edit]

This is a good article, but it needs to address the issue of property tax as well. Some states may have higher taxes from sales and income, but lower taxes from property. For example, does the average homeowner in New Jersey really pay less overall in taxes than a Delaware resident. This gets difficult to calculate because property taxes are assessed at the county and/or municipal level. I'm not sure how to approach this. Suggestions? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:33, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Not sure where to get the data but it is a good point. I believe Florida was seriously considering the removal of property taxes and putting it into their sales tax. Morphh (talk) 23:16, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

This is a bit of a wikipedia wide problem I guess. -- (talk) 03:36, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Comparison to personal income[edit]

As stated in the intro, the comparison to per capita personal income is flawed. I presume this is why the original research tag was added to the article back in 2011. The sources provide individual income tax revenue per state if we want that. —Mrwojo (talk) 19:17, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

I see that the shares are now shown as share of total taxes. Would Income tax, Sales tax, License tax make better sense to compare against State GDP? If someone wants to compare income between locations, that is the factor they would want to adjust their incomes with - per capita tax by per capita income.

Tax table[edit]

Are zeros to mean there is no such tax in that state? Or is that what the Xs are for? This is confusing.

Is there any way to include % of tax? I seem to recall seeing that somewhere. Sir Joseph (talk) 20:19, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
