Maryland taxpayers would be hit with the largest federal income-tax increase in the country if Congress fails to pass legislation to avert the looming "fiscal cliff," and the average U.S. family of four would pay an extra $3,200, according to a study by the nonpartisan Tax Foundation.
Mr. Kasprak said the two groups of states at the top — five wealthy blue states followed by five lower-income red states — are vulnerable for different reasons.
"The general pattern is basically that high-income states and low-income states are most affected," said Nick Kasprak, an analyst and programmer at the Tax Foundation who wrote the study. "People would start to see that as soon as January, when their paychecks start getting smaller."
