First up are our new State Pages, which have been reorganized to show basic tax rates and statistics, as well as where each state rank in our various annual studies. Pick your state from the drop down menu to get a comprehensive look at its tax system.
We've also overhauled our Tax Topics page. Previously, we had separate topic pages for articles, blog posts, data tables, etc. Now, all of these things appear together on the same topic page, while still being organized by content type.
If you're looking for all our publications in one page, visit our Historical Studies and Reports page, where you can filter by year of publication.
If you've found a broken link, or have comments or questions about the new design, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
