The Biggest Source of Tax Revenue in Every State

With the end of the year approaching, Americans are beginning to turn their attention toward tax season.

In addition to $3.3 trillion in federal taxes, in 2017 Americans paid $950.5 billion in state taxes distributed across sales, income, property, license and other taxes.

Across all states, sales and gross receipts taxes were the largest source of state tax revenue, followed closely by income taxes; however, the breakdown of tax revenue by state varies widely.

Most Americans are aware that their pocketbooks will be affected differently depending on what part of the country they live in, but few understand just how their hard-earned dollars are converted into funds used to support state education, health care, transportation and other public services.

To better understand the largest sources of tax revenue for each state, our researchers analyzed data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2017 Survey of State Government Tax Collections. We calculated per capita tax amounts across the survey’s broad taxation categories: income, property, sales and gross receipts, licensing and “other.”

Income tax includes both individual and corporate income. The “other” category is composed of death and gift taxes, documentary and stock transfer taxes, severance taxes and nonemployee compensation taxes.

For each state, the largest source of tax revenue was determined based on the relative percentage breakdown across the five broad categories. Per capita tax amounts were determined using state population figures from the Census Bureau 2017 Annual Estimates of the Resident Population.

Following are the largest sources of tax revenue in each state.
