In talking about taxes, GBPI often says that Georgia is a low tax state. We cite data from the Census Bureau and Bureau of Economic Analysis that ranks Georgia between 37th and 43rd in several state and local revenue measures in 2006, the most recent year available. This seemingly contrasts with rankings by the Tax Foundation, which place Georgia 20th in tax obligation among the states in 2006 and 16th highest in 2008. So, who’s right about Georgia taxes? Actually, they are not seeking to measure the same thing.
