- Vermont has the 11th highest state and local tax burden in the country; average income taxes are $1,100 a year.
- Property taxes are the 5th highest in the nation, averaging $2,500 per capita.
- Sales taxes take in $600 a person.
- Vermont's business tax climate is ranked 47th out of 50 by the Tax Foundation
So we're up to $4,200 a year on average.
By comparison, their next door neighbor (New Hampshire) has no income tax or sales tax: and it's state and local tax burden ranks 44th. Its business tax climate ranks 7th.
Maybe Vermont should focus on un-fucking its tax system, rather than gimmicky handouts for "up to 100" remote employees who are moving to the state anyway?
