In 2015, state and local tax revenue amounted to 9.3 percent of statewide personal income, down from 10.7 percent in 2009. Michigan had lower state and local tax revenues as a share of personal income than the “Top Ten” average, and was on par with the peer state average.

What It Is: State and local tax revenue as a share of personal income.

Why It Matters: Higher state and local taxes reduce take-home pay for residents and mean a higher cost of living.
