(Undated)  --  A new analysis shows Oregon pays the tenth-highest amount of taxes each year among the 50 states.  Finance-and-lifestyle website 24/7 Wall Street says more than one in every ten dollars earned in Oregon goes to state and local governments in the form of taxes.  The website says nearly 41 percent of all state and local tax revenue in Oregon came from individual income tax in 2014, which is the largest such share in the country.  New York is listed as the state that pays the highest amount in taxes, while Alaska pays the lowest.
