California Is 2020’s State with the 3rd Worst Taxpayer ROI – WalletHub Study


Tax Day can be a painful reminder of how much we have to invest in federal, state and local governments, though many of us are unaware of exactly what they give us in return. As a result, this creates a disconnect in the minds of taxpayers between the amount of money we should fork over in April – or July, as is the case this year due to COVID-19 – and how much we deserve in return.

With Tax Day approaching after it was delayed to July 15 due to coronavirus, WalletHub today released an updated analysis of the U.S. tax landscape, an in-depth look at the states with the Best & Worst Taxpayer Return on Investment in 2020, as well as accompanying videos.

WalletHub used 31 metrics to compare the quality and efficiency of state-government services across five categories — Education, Health, Safety, Economy, and Infrastructure & Pollution — taking into account the drastically different rates at which citizens are taxed in each state.

Taxpayer ROI in California (1=Best, 25=Avg.):
  • 48th – Overall ROI
  • 45th – Total Taxes per Capita (Population Aged 18+)
  • 11th – Education
  • 15th – Health
  • 34th – Safety
  • 36th – Economy
  • 49th – Infrastructure & Pollution
