“The situation here is worse than in most states, according to the analysis of 2012 income data by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, which ranked states based on how state and local taxes affect low- and middle-income families compared with the richest 1 percent.

The study, which covered tax changes in the states through 2014, found that under nearly every state tax system, wealthier families pay a smaller percentage of their income in taxes than the lowest 80 percent of earners do. It ranks Ohio 18th worst for inequality.”
