State Property & Sales Tax Climate: New Jersey

The Tax Foundation recently conducted a study of the tax climates in each of the fifty states and then rated and ranked them based on five categories: corporate tax, individual income, sales tax, unemployment insurance tax, and property tax. The Tax Foundation’s rankings are designed to show how well state tax systems are structured, rather than simply rank the states by the amount of taxes assessed.

New Jersey finished dead last in overall tax climate and it ranked in the individual tax categories as follows: 42 (corporate tax), 48 (individual income tax), 45 (sales tax), 25 (unemployment insurance tax), and 50 (property tax).
