This report presents Anderson Economic Group’s annual state business tax burden ranking for all 50 states and the District of Columbia for the year 2013. We define the business tax burden as the total state and local taxes paid by businesses as a share of pre-tax operating margin, a measure of the funds from which business can pay the tax.
The purposes of this report are to:
• Identify the major state and local taxes paid by businesses,
• Estimate the total amount of state and local taxes paid in 2013 by business in each state,
• Estimate each state’s business tax burden in 2013 using state and local taxes paid as a share of business’ pre-tax operating margin, and
• Rank all 50 states and the District of Columbia by their 2013 business tax burden.
