Texas taxpayers get more bang for their buck

WASHINGTON (WalletHub) – Texas taxpayers have the seventh-best return on investment (ROI) for their tax dollars, according to a national ranking. To determine which states yield the best and worst ROI for taxpayers, WalletHub compared the quality of government services received by residents to the total state and local taxes they pay in each of the 50 states.

The Lone Star State ranks fifth in lowest total taxes paid per capita. Its overall government services ranking is 38th.

In individual government service categories, Texas ranks 34th in education; 31st in health; 39th in safety; 18th in economy; and 49th in infrastructure and pollution. It has the fifth-worst roads and bridges in the nation.

New Hampshire has the best taxpayer ROI rank. Hawaii ranks last.
