MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin’s state and local tax burden has dropped one slot, from 15th highest to 16th highest.

That is according to an analysis by the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance released Wednesday. The report says that taxes in Wisconsin fell from 10.9 percent of personal income in 2013 to 10.8 percent in 2014.

The findings are based on U.S. Census data which lags by two years.

The share of state and local taxes in Wisconsin has dropped since 2011 when it was 11.8 percent. The Taxpayers Alliance says that is due largely to a drop in local taxes as a share of personal income caused by a tightening of property tax limits.

The report says Wisconsin’s property taxes are 11th highest nationally, claiming 3.9 percent of income.
