wallettaxIt’s no secret that tax bills aren’t created equal. But while most of us understand that some states don’t charge income or sales taxes, we don’t necessarily realize how state-by-state tax differences result in us paying considerably more (or less) than our neighbors in other states. To answer that question, WalletHub today released a report on 2015’s Best & Worst States to Be a Taxpayer.







WalletHub compared tax rates in the 50 states as well as the District of Columbia in terms of the national average consumer’s income and spending habits.
