How High Are Individual Income Tax Collections in Your State?

by Kari Jahnsen, Tax Foundation, July 20, 2017

The individual income tax is the third largest source of tax revenue for state and local governments, accounting for 22.9 percent of collections in fiscal year 2014. Property taxes and sales taxes comprise larger shares of state and local tax collection at 31.3 percent and 23.3 percent respectively.

This week’s map shows the combined state and local individual income tax collections per person in fiscal year 2014. Here, individual income taxes include both broad-based taxes on wage income and taxes on specific types of income, such as dividend and interest income. Forty-one states have broad-based individual income taxes. New Hampshire and Tennessee only tax interest and dividend income (though Tennessee is in the process of phasing its out), while seven states have no individual income taxes (Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming).

Individual income tax

State and local governments collected an average of $1,070 per person from individual income taxes, but the collection amount varies widely from state to state. New York collected $2,699 per person, the most of any state. Connecticut comes in second at $2,162, with Maryland rounding out the top three at $2,097 collected per person.

Arizona collected $515 per person, the least among states with broad-based taxes on wage income. Other states with relatively low collections include Mississippi ($557), Louisiana ($592), and New Mexico ($622). New Hampshire and Tennessee, which tax only interest and dividend income, collected $70 and $37 per person respectively. The seven states that don’t collect individual income taxes predictably reported $0 in per person collections.
