State Tax Revenues

Stateline.org has a nice graphic showing the proportion of a state’s tax revenue base.  Interesting to see that Oregon has the highest share of income taxes while its neighbor Washington has next to nothing! You will pay for it in each sale you make.  If I could make an observation, it seems that the states with the most balanced budgets are the ones that are weathering the recession nicely.  Future governors should keep that it mind.
