How attached are you to the state you live in? Although most people would rather not relocate, where a person lives can actually make a huge difference in his or her tax bill. That’s because Kiplinger recently released its list of the most and least “tax-friendly” states when it comes to taxes. The business publisher used three important tax factors to determine their results, including state income tax, gas tax and sales tax. Here’s what they found.

If you live in Delaware then chances are you’re happier than most about your tax bill. With an income tax coming in between 2.2 percent to 6.6 percent, along with no sales tax and well below average gas taxes, Delaware was number one on the list of most friendly tax states. Wyoming, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama were also on the friendliest list.

Meanwhile the news is not so good if you live in California. With an income tax reaching as high as 13 percent for the top earners, a 7.5 percent sales tax and a gas tax coming in at $.053, the golden state is number one on the list of least friendly tax states. Other states that will keep your tax bill high include New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. Click here to see the entire lists.
