Abstract/ Summary

Is Maine's tax burden really a millstone? Not necessarily, say University of Maine researchers. It all depends on the factors and numbers used to arrive at a ranking. The perceived weight of Maine's tax burden as the 10th highest in the nation has been the driving force behind Gov. Angus King's tax reform plan. And Money magazine's recent state-by-state tax burden ranking placing Maine in the number five slot has made headlines statewide.
