Today, the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council) published its fifth annual state tax rankings: “Small Business Tax Index 2014: Best to Worst State Tax Systems for Entrepreneurship and Small Business.”
The index ranks the 50 states according to the costs of their tax systems for entrepreneurship and small business.
SBE Council's “Small Business Tax Index 2014” pulls together 21 different tax measures, and combines those into one tax score that allows the 50 states to be compared and ranked. Among the taxes included are income, capital gains, property, death, unemployment, and various consumption-based taxes, including state gas and diesel levies.
