Wisconsin's Tax Ranking Drops from 6th to 8th

The Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance examined Census Bureau data to come up with the new ranking released today. It says the change is due to higher taxes elsewhere, and not a drop in Wisconsin.

The report shows that state and local taxes claimed about 12 percent of personal income in 2004. That was down slightly from the previous year.

Wisconsin is one of eleven states where taxes declined as a share of income. Only corporate income taxes claimed a larger share of income in 2005 compared with 2004.

The report shows that individual income and general sales taxes dropped slightly, while property taxes were virtually unchanged.
