CBPP: Half of States Tax Families Below Poverty Level

Cbpp_logoThe Center on Budget and Policy Priorities yesterday released The Impact of State Income Taxes on Low-Income Families in 2006:

Poor families in many states face substantial state income tax liability for the 2006 tax year. In 19 of the 42 states that levy income taxes, two-parent families of four with incomes below the federal poverty line are liable for income tax. In 15 of the 42 states, poor single-parent families of three pay income tax. And 29 of these states collect taxes from families of four with incomes just above the poverty line.
