We’re No. 36…on one tax list

OLYMPIA — Washington state are about two-thirds of the way down the list when one considers how much of their income they pay for state and local taxes.

This according to the folks in charge of collecting the taxes, so they should know, right.

The state Department of Revenue said Washington residents paid $96.08 in state and local taxes on every $1,000 of income. That puts them at No. 36 on a list of taxes to income.

That puts them ahead of Idaho, which is ranked 45th with $89.98 per $1,000, and just behind No. 35, Oregon, which is at $96.88.

No. 1 is New York, where residents pay $204.12 per $1,000; No. 50 is South Dakota at $83.72.
