MISSOURI NEAR BOTTOM OF TAX LIST

The Show-Me State's tax burden is far below the national average. In fact, Missouri ranks 46th on the list of states, with an average annual per-capita tax of $1,645.49. The national average is $2,192.27.

The Census Bureau figures also rank states by total taxes. Here, Missouri is 22nd in the nation, with $9.5 billion in state taxes.
