Facts & Figures 2014: How Does Your State Compare?

Fiscal data resource for reporters, lawmakers, CPAs, and fact-checkers
This morning, the Tax Foundation released the 2014 edition of Facts & Figures: How Does Your State Compare? Just in time for tax season, the latest edition of this popular pocket-sized handbook contains the rates and rankings of all 50 states on 39 different measures of tax and fiscal policy.
Topics include information on tax measures (such as revenue per capita, federal aid to states, and State Business Tax Climate Index rankings), individual income taxes, corporate income taxes, general sales taxes, excise taxes, property taxes, state debt, and population data. For a full list of all measures included in this year’s edition,

“It’s crucial that lawmakers and taxpayers have an accurate grasp of where their state stands on key tax and spending measures compared to the rest of the country,” said Tax Foundation economist Lyman Stone. “States are aggressively competing for new jobs and investment. As businesses and taxpayers consider where they might want to move or invest, a state’s tax structure is an important consideration.”
Since 1937, the Tax Foundation has produced and distributed information on government finances at the federal, state, and local levels. In 1941, the first edition of Facts & Figures made its debut with the goal of presenting “concise and accurate data” to help “meet the challenge presented by the broad problems of public finance.” Over seventy years later, the goal is the same.
Facts & Figures 2014: How Does Your State Compare? is available for free online.
