Sixth in the nation, 1st in the Midwest
Unfortunately, I’m not referring to one of our local basketball teams. A new study on state taxes has Wisconsin ranked as the 6th highest tax burden, numero uno in the midwest.
It gets worse.
A third measure, focusing only on the “big three” state and local taxes that most individuals pay – income, sales and property taxes – ranked Wisconsin third overall, behind only New York and Maine, the group said.
We’re number three!
