Tax Comparisons

Minnesota is frequently rated highly for quality of life and for overall health in 50-state rankings. Of course, rankings are subject to interpretation and state tax comparisons are no different. The Legislative Library recently received a number of interesting tax study reports that examine all fifty states. 

50-State Property Tax Comparison Study.  Minnesota Center for Fiscal Excellence, 2015.  An analysis on the relative property tax burdens across the country that compares the effective property tax rates for four classes of property located in the largest city in each state, the largest fifty cities in the U.S., and a rural area in each state. 

Facts & Figures: How Does Your State Compare? Tax Foundation, 2015. This handy booklet compares the 50 states on many different measures of taxing and spending, including individual and corporate income tax rates, business tax climates, excise taxes, tax burdens and state spending. The Foundation's website offers the option of pulling out information on a single state, such as Minnesota, with helpful graphics and links to additional content.

State Business Tax Climate Index. Tax Foundation, 2014.  Minnesota ranks 47th in this latest comparison, falling a bit from our 45th place ranking in both 2012 and 2013 (a rank of 1 is more favorable for business than a rank of 50). The Tax Foundation states: "The index is designed to show how well states structure their tax systems, and provides a road-map to improving these structures."

Total State and Local Business Taxes: State-by-State Estimates for Fiscal Year 2013. Council on State Taxation, 2014.  This study presents detailed state-by-state estimates of the state and local taxes paid by businesses for FY2013.

Please call the Legislative Reference Library’s reference desk at 651-296-8338 or email refdesk@lrl.leg.mn for copies of these reports or to be notified about new books or articles on this topic.
