Monday Map: Changes in State Tax Collections Per Capita, 2001-2011
Today's Monday Map looks at state tax collections - over the past decade, which states have increased the amount they collect per person, and which states have decreased it? Alaska comes in with the highest increase - a 167.59% increase in real tax collections per capita (though it's worth pointing out that most of this is not paid by Alaska residents). Georgia is at the other end - for each resident, the state collects 25% less in real dollars than it did ten years earlier.
