New Edition of Facts & Figures: How Does Your State Compare?
We have released the 2011 version of Facts & Figures: How Does Your State Compare?, a popular pocket-sized booklet comparing the 50 states on 32 different measures of taxation and spending, including individual and corporate income tax rates, business tax climates, excise taxes, tax burdens and state spending
Copies are available for $3 each on Amazon.com. If you'd like a large number of copies to share with your colleagues and friends, contact us about bulk discounts. You can also download the PDF or Excel file free of charge here.
Every year we send Facts & Figures free of charge to all state legislators, and many of them request extra copies and tell us how useful the booklet is. We believe it's vital for the people who make the laws to understand the level and impact of taxation. From our founding in 1937, the Tax Foundation has been grounded in the belief that the dissemination of basic information about government finance is the foundation of sound policy in a free society. We can afford to print and mail these booklets free of charge to policymakers only because of the generosity of our donors. As a nonprofit, we rely on the support of those who find our information useful and want to help us educate others about sound tax policy.
Please consider making a donation to help us continue providing policymakers with this valuable information.
