Kiplinger: California is nation’s least tax-friendly state — again

California defended its dubious title as the nation’s least tax-friendly state on Kiplinger’s 2016 list evaluating all 50 states.

Just as it did in 2015, Washington, D.C.-based personal finance/business forecaster Kiplinger found fault with the Golden State’s range of relatively high taxes on everything from general merchandise to gasoline.

The Golden State ranked just below Hawaii and Connecticut in the annual rankings.

Sparsely populated Wyoming ranked as the nation’s most tax-friendly state in 2016.
