From the L.A. Times:
Those living in the Golden State shell out about $9,509 for state and local taxes, 36% more than the national average. New York residents pay $9,718, or nearly 40% more than what people pay on average in the country.
Wyoming imposes the lowest level of taxes on residents -- just $2,365, or 66% below the U.S. average. It is followed by Alaska ($2,791), Nevada ($3,370) and Florida ($3,648). [...]
Some Americans were also helped by states that levy no taxes in certain areas. Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon charge no sales taxes. Texas and Alaska are among the seven states that impose no income taxes.
