Idaho Says It’s Better Than Us

Date: November 02, 2013

It didn’t exactly phrase it this way, but an annual report by the Idaho State Tax Commission drew the unmistakable conclusion that it’s not only better than Nevada in the state and local tax burden it levies on its citizens, it’s also the best in the West.

“Idaho has the 49th lowest overall per capita tax burden in the country and the lowest tax burden among western states,” according to a news release issued by the commission. “Per capita tax burden was $2,975 in FY2011, compared to $4,296 for the national average and $3,648 for the median of 11 western states.”

The comparison to Nevada comes in its Population-Based Comparison table on Page 11 of the report, where Nevada is ranked 29th to Idaho's 49th.

Idaho’s report can be accessed through the news release link. What’s your thought on taxes? Drop NFIB/Nevada State Director Randi Thompson an email.
