A new report, "The Way We Tax: A 50-State Report," produced by the staff of Governing magazine, points out weaknesses in state tax systems across the country. "The vast majority of state tax systems are inadequate for the task of funding a 21st century government," the authors begin. "Many of those tax systems are also unfair."The report claims that tax policies among the states, which vary greatly from state to state, are based on decisions made during the depression era. While economic conditions have changed, taxes, for the most part, have not kept up with the change.
