This graph shows how Washington State's heavy reliance on sales and property taxes makes our tax system so regressive - the worst in the nation. By contrast, Oregon has a progressive income tax and no sales tax, resulting in a far more equitable tax code.
This graph shows the percentage of income the 20% lowest income households pay in taxes in each state.
In red, states with no income tax. In yellow, states with capital gain taxes but no income tax.
