Helluva Town

My sources inform me the New York City Independent Budget Office has released a comparison of tax burdens across the 9 U.S. cities with population in excess of a million. If I had more spare time, I might dig into the report for the one glaring bit of bizarreness in the graph. Apparently, San Antonio has a higher state tax burden than Houston, which in turn has a higher burden than Dallas. Given that all three cities are in the same state, I wonder how that actually happens. It makes me question the validity of their methodology.

Anyhow, hopefully surprising no one, New York City has the highest tax burden. Maybe the t-shirts should read I $ NY?
