Most Tax Friendly

Like Tennessee, New Hampshire has a very limited income tax that only applies to dividend and interest income. There’s no sales tax in the Granite State, either. New Hampshire residents also don’t pay too much state tax at the pump. At only 23.83 cents per gallon, the state’s gasoline tax is well below the national average. Local governments in New Hampshire dig deep into your pocket for property taxes, though.
