BOISE, Idaho (AP) — When it comes to their taxes, Idahoans can count their blessings, according to a new report that concludes the state’s tax burden is lower than all but two states. Only Alabama and South Carolina have a lower per capita tax burden.

In an annual report delivered on Wednesday, the Idaho State Tax Commission says Idaho also has the lowest tax burden among Western states. The calculations are based on tax revenue in 2011.

Property Tax Policy Bureau Chief Alan Dornfest says Idaho’s overall tax burden rose slightly from 2010, a development largely the result of improved economic activity following the end of the Great Recession. Idaho’s per capita tax burden was $2,975 in 2011, compared to $4,296 for the national average and $3,648 for the median of 11 western states.
