The Internal Revenue Service and the Census Bureau released a report late last week that projects the per capita amount of federal taxes that will be paid by each stateís residents for the 2016 tax season. To arrive at the figures they factored in federal income, employment, estate and trust taxes.

The state that pays the most income tax isnít a state at all. The District of Columbiaís average tax payer will send $36,569 to Uncle Sam. That is more than double Delaware which is expected to pay $16,322 per capita. Of course there are a lot of very high salaries in Washington D.C. And lest you feel too bad for the poor residents of Washington D.C., another study shows that for every dollar they send to the government they get $4 back.

Nebraska is 13th on the list with a per capita taxation of $9,556. They are the first state in our immediate geographic area of the country to make the list. Colorado comes in at 16th with each of us expecting to write a check for $9,030 to the government. The average tax bill in the United States would come in at 18th. The average citizen will give the IRS $8,943. Sixteen states pay more than that and 34 pay less.
