Hawaii has been declared one of the "Terrible Ten" most regressive states for tax laws, by the nonpartisan Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, based in Wash., D.C.
An ITEP study released today found that Hawaii has among the highest taxes on the poor, alongside Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, and Washington.
The nonprofit research organization's findings are reported in the fourth edition of its study titled, "Who Pays? A Distributional Analysis of the Tax Systems in All 50 States," released today.
