GOBankingRates Logo By Cynthia Measom of GOBankingRates | Slide 1 of 31: Even if you earn a decent middle-class salary, all of the state and local income taxes you have to pay can eat away at your bottom line, leaving you with less money in your pocket than you’d like. But not all states are equal when it comes to the amount of taxes you’ll pay due to owning property, buying goods or having to submit to a personal income tax. The best states for taxes, as well as the worst, exist.
GOBankingRates conducted a study that determined the most tax-friendly states for the middle class by looking at the shares of certain income taxes paid by the middle 20 percent of income earners in 30 different states.
