Some of the taxes the government draws on to collect money include "a blueberry tax in Maine and a mosquito tax in Alabama," reports cost information site Howmuch.net, which used research from the Tax Foundation to break down how state and local governments raise revenue.

"While the federal tax system is the same for everybody, local and state taxes vary greatly," the site reports. "Some states rely more heavily on one particular tax category, and/or not at all on others." For instance, five states charge no sales tax, including New Hampshire and Delaware, while more than 45 percent of West Virginia's revenue comes from sales taxes.

"The differences between states can be traced to differences in the demography, geography and even the ideology of the various states," Howmuch.net reports.

To give you an idea of where local and state authorities are getting their money, CNBC Make It rounded up the sources of state and local tax collection in each state. For reference, here's the national average for these state and local taxes:
