While some states have higher tax burdens then others, they can still be seen as fair rates to some.

“Fairness is in the eye of the beholder. Some people see a tax as fair when everyone pays the same percentage tax rate, while others define fairness differently and want to see the tax burden rise as a share of income. Sales and property taxes are seen as fair to some because everyone generally pays the same tax rate. However, they are viewed by others as less fair because the tax burden falls as a share of income as income rises. Income taxes are broadly seen as more fair because they usually involve graduated marginal tax rates. In other words, those with more income pay a higher percentage of that income in taxes,” Donald Bruce, Associate Director, Boyd Center for Business & Economic Research at the University of Tennessee explaind.

Tax Day is April 18.
