How Taxing Is Your State?

In the wake of the 2012 election, there are 35 state governments where a single party fully controls both the executive and legislative branches. That means taxpayers can expect volatility as Republicans and Democrats seek to make their mark on state tax codes, says Steven Roll, a state tax analyst with Bloomberg BNA.

Is your state one of 14 that taxes Social Security income? Or are you in one of only two states to levy both an estate tax and inheritance tax? See how your state stacks up on income tax, sales tax, property tax, estate tax, inheritance tax and more.* Methodology details are on the final slide.

*If no tax on income, sales, estates or inheritance is noted on a slide, it is not levied in that state.
