Wisconsin

Top income tax rate: 7.75%
Sales tax: 5%
Property tax per capita: $1,698

Fittingly for a state where Miller Brewing used to be headquartered, Wisconsin's state tax on beer is among the nation's lowest. The cigarette tax, however, is the eighth-highest in the country, at $2.52 per pack, according to the Tax Foundation. The state also features relatively high property taxes. Governor Scott Walker, who survived a recall election in 2012, recently proposed a budget that cuts income taxes and allows more school voucher use.
