Monday Map: State and Local Tax Deductions
August 27, 2012
Today's Monday Map focuses on the deduction of state and local income or sales taxes from federal taxable income. New York State benefits the most from this deduction – its residents deducted an average of 6.16% of their income in state taxes. Alaska benefits least, having neither an income tax nor a statewide sales tax; the small average of 0.26% most likely comes from local sales taxes.
