Where you live can make a big difference in how far your money goes. The cost of living expenses such as housing and food can eat into your budget a lot more in some places than others, and state taxes can also vary widely.

If you don’t make much money, you could easily find yourself struggling more in some states than in others.

WalletHub recently put together a study detailing the way that taxes in each state and the District of Columbia affect the income of low-, middle- and high-income residents. The study ranked the states and D.C. based on the total tax burden as a percentage of income for each type of earner.

Following are the five worst and five best states when it comes to the tax impact on residents with a low income, which WalletHub defined as $25,000.
