Following on the heels of its Federal Dependency and State Tax Rate reports, WalletHub.com released its latest analysis of the U.S. tax landscape, an in-depth look at which states give taxpayers the Best and Worst Return on Investment, the website said in an email Monday.

WalletHub said it used 27 metrics to compare the quality and efficiency of state government services across six distinct categories – Infrastructure, Education, Health, Safety, Economy and Pollution – to the drastically different rates at which citizens are taxed in each state and municipality.
