    One wrinkle in the Tax Foundation's method: they measured the burden on state residents. So if you commute to NYC from CT or NJ and pay NY state and city income tax, that's counted as a tax burden on the resident's state. Not that it probably matters that much when we're talking about those three states...

    Some states with low tax burdens have something going for them that garners sizable revenue from out-of-state, e.g., gambling in Nevada, tourism in Florida, etc.
