I’m not sure if I believe this study. I know that my paycheck definitely disagrees with it!!!
But, a new study from our friends WalletHub.com has just ranked a bunched of states based on tax fairness.
According to the study, Connecticut has one of the fairer tax systems in the country
The state ranked 14 out of the 50 states.
But when you actually break it down a bit…you see a little more..
- Connecticut’s dependency on property taxes rank was 40
- Dependency on income (personal and business) taxes rank was 36
- Its dependency on other taxes rank was 2.
This was based on an online survey of more than 1,050 people and what they thought a fair state and local tax system looked like. They also looked over income taxes and other taxes such as property, sales and excise.
Who was on the top of the list, you may be wondering. Montana, followed by Oregon and South Carolina.
The bottom three were Hawaii, Georgia and Washington.
