States where residents have the largest average tax bill: report

Biden’s IRS reporting device for third-party payment processors ‘will affect your taxes,’ says Norquist

Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist argues people who have a side hustle and independent contractors are ‘being swept up’ by the administration’s latest IRS push.

With tax season in full swing, you’ll want to be careful that you’re not underpaying the IRS so you don’t get hit with a tax bill. 

A new report from SmartAsset found which states’ residents had the highest average tax bill after underpaying the IRS. 

HIGH INFLATION WILL IMPACT YOUR TAX BILL

The U.S. average was $5,621, but some states had much higher numbers, according to SmartAsset.

For its report, SmartAsset compared all 50 U.S. states and Washington, D.C. based on the number of tax underpayments and the amount of underpaid taxes, using 2019 data (the most recent year available) from the IRS.
