Property tax statistics are derived from a Tax Foundation analysis of fiscal year 2010 U.S. Census data. If no income tax, sales tax, estate tax or inheritance tax is noted on a slide, it's because it is not levied in that state. Seven states have no income tax. Sixteen states and Washington, D.C., have estate taxes, and eight states have inheritance taxes (that includes Tennessee's inheritance tax, which the Tax Foundation notes functions as an estate tax).

For more details on state taxes, Bloomberg BNA's "State Tax Essentials" ($55) can be ordered here; its "Federal Tax Essentials" book ($55) can be found here and a $25 e-book version of it is here.
