Combined local-state tax rate in Colorado stood at 9.4% in 2019

The study included examinations on levies about general sales taxes, property taxes, excise taxes, and others.

Across the United States, the average state-local tax burden came in at 10.3% of Americans’ combined income, the study said. Generally, state-local tax rates rose in 2019 over the previous year as tax collections outpaced overall income growth, the Tax Foundation’s analysis found.

The foundation’s researchers also point out that about a fifth of states’ tax revenues come from nonresidents, such as tourists and out-of-state homeowners. Based on the latest economic data available, the study accounted for this and looked primarily at state and local levies paid by each state’s residents.
