Supplementary notes

This business tax climate index looks at levels of taxation and complexity of compliance to compare the states on how "business friendly" each state is compared to the others. The scale for each factor considered is one to ten, with ten being the "best". Rankings are based on unrounded scores and reflect those of the source.
