A Washington-based policy group says New York residents had the highest state-and-local tax burden in the country in 2011.
The Tax Foundation says Wednesday that they used the latest data available to show New York residents paid 12.6 percent of their collective incomes in state and local taxes in 2011.
New Jersey was No. 2 at 12.3 percent. The national average was 9.8 percent.
A new report from the nonprofit Tax Foundation shows people moving out of the state during the last decade took $45.6 billion in personal income from New York's economy, the most in the nation.
The Washington, D.C.-based foundation says its calculations and map showing migration among states from 2000 to 2010 are based on Internal Revenue Service data.
They show California the second-largest income loser, down $29.4 billion, followed by Illinois, down $20.4 billion.
