Best and worst tax ROI

With Tax Day looming for all, residents of some states will receive a much better bang for their buck when it comes to taxes than those in other states.

A recent survey by WalletHub.com ranked states by taxpayer return on investment (ROI) based on the quality and efficiency of state government services. To make this determination, the survey looked at categories such as education, health, safety, economy, infrastructure and pollution in a given state.

"The results are interesting because a lot of taxpayers are able to see roads and bridges being built because they are so tangible," said Jill Gonzalez, a WalletHub.com spokeswoman. "But the other categories, like education, are also important, but less evident."
