BALTIMORE (WJZ) — As tax season is here, a study from the Wallethub finds that Maryland ranks as the 4th worst state to be rich from a tax perspective.
Wallethub calculated the share of one’s income that he or she contributed toward sales and excise taxes, property taxes and income taxes to find where people in different income brackets spend the most and least on taxes in the U.S.
Maryland ranked 23 for low income owners, 36 for middle income earners and 48 for high income earners.
Delaware ranked no. 1 for low income earners, second for middle income earners and 10 for high income earners.
Pennsylvania ranked 48 for low income earners, 47 for middle income earners and 40 for high income earners.
