(WKBW) — It's tough to make ends meet when you're losing more of your personal income to state and local taxes than all other Americans.

To come up with the numbers, Wallethub compared the 50 states across the three tax types of state tax burdens: property taxes, individual income taxes and sales and excise taxes.

The Empire State was ranked as follows:

  • Highest total tax burden (12.97% of what New Yorkers make is paid out to state and local taxes)
  • Highest individual income tax burden (4.81%)
  • Sixth-highest property tax burden (4.57%)
  • 21st-highest total sales and excise tax burden (3.59%)
