In September 2015, Wisconsin was ranked the 23rd best in the country in “tax burden,” a term used when describing the dollar amount each taxpayer would have to send to their state’s treasury for the state to become debt free. With a state surplus of almost $8.1 billion in unfunded and promised retirement benefits, Wisconsin’s taxpayer burden was projected at $4,100. (Ballotpedia.org)
