Monday Map: State Tax Collections Per Capita

April 16, 2012

Today’s Monday Map shows state tax collections per capita. Collections figures differ from the burdens numbers used to calculate Tax Freedom Day by state in that they reflect the amount collected by each state government from everyone, instead of (as with state by state Tax Freedom day figures) the amount paid by each state’s residents to all state governments. For example, Alaska has a low tax burden but high tax collections, because a lot of its revenue comes from the state’s taxes on gas and fuels, paid mostly by nonresidents.
