State Tax Maps

Providing journalists, taxpayers and policymakers with basic data on taxes and spending is a cornerstone of the Tax Foundation’s educational mission. We’ve found that one of the best, most engaging ways to do that is by visualizing tax data in the form of maps.

How does your state collect revenue? Every week, we release a new tax map that illustrates one important measure of state tax rates, collections, burdens and more. If you enjoy our weekly tax maps, help us continue this work and more by making a small contribution here.
