Washington becoming low-tax state? One new report ranks state at No. 28 for tax burden, another puts it down at 36th
The Washington, D.C.-based Tax Foundation put out its new report on state and local taxes this week and it shows Washington is a below-average state for taxes. The Evergreen State landed No. 28 out of 50 states for high taxes, which means 22 states were lower and 27 were higher when state and local government taxes were compared to total incomes.
The national report pegged Washington’s state-local tax burden at about 9.3 percent of incomes in 2010.
