Oregon

Income tax: 11%
State sales tax: None
Property tax per capita: $1,133
Inheritance tax: None
Estate tax: 0.8% to 16% with a $1 million exemption

Oregon is tied with Hawaii for the nation's highest income tax, although Oregon hits 11 percent only for income exceeding $500,000 for joint filers, while Hawaii levies that rate on all individuals. Of extremely negligible comfort: a $50 tax credit for those who have lost the use of two or more limbs.
