Tax Wealth in Fifty States. 1977 Supplement.
Halstead, D. Kent; Weldon, H. Kent
This first supplement to the basic volume presents tax capacity, effort, and collected revenue data for state and local governments for 1977. Planned for issuance every other year, the supplement consists of computer printout tables with the earlier basic volume continuing to serve as reference for theory, analysis, and methodology. Figures for all states for fiscal year 1977 are presented in extensive tables. The system used is a simplified version of the Representative Tax System, which identifies tax bases, determines national average tax rates for those bases, and uses the figures to determine each state's reasonable taxing capacity. The system also provides for comparing actual taxing performance against these capacities to reveal relative tax effort. The appendix offers tables of capacity and effort measures by type of tax.
