Since 2000, state and local burdens have increased from 9.3 percent to 9.9 percent. During the 2010 fiscal year, however, burdens remained fairly stable, only decreasing
slightly from their 2009 levels.
Of particular note, the study doesn’t look at the revenue collected rather the burden upon the taxpayer:
For each state, we compute this measure of tax burden by totaling the amount of
state and local taxes paid by state residents to
both their own and other governments and
then divide these totals by each state’s total income.
