State taxes

Each State has established its own forms of taxation that fit with the state's needs and best taxing methods.  Typically State taxes include a basic mix of real estate property taxes, personal property taxes excise taxes and either a sales tax or income tax or both.

Although State Income taxes have become popular in recent times, some states such as Florida and Texas do not have income taxes.  Instead, they rely on a State sales tax along with use taxes such as hotel room taxes, rental car taxes, toll roads and other similar taxes.  These taxes are aimed at the users of services and tourists.

It is worth noting that California probably has the largest mix of taxes of any State.  The result being that the State and local government tax liability can exceed 50% or the income of many Californians.

Within States there can be special assessment districts such as water, sewage, public transit or school districts that levy their own taxes.  These taxes might be in the form of property taxes, tolls, sales taxes and other fees.

The primary income for the general fund for most states comes primarily from State taxes on income and/or sales taxes.
