New Yorkers paid the 7th highest rate of per capita state taxes in the country in 2009, according to the taxpayers’ watchdog web site Taxadmin.org. New York had the 11th highest state tax burden in 2008.

But the jump in the state-by-state standings didn’t happen because taxes increased. In fact, the per capita tax burden went down by $28 last year, to $3,328.

New York taxpayers paid a lower percentage of their personal income to the state in 2009, 6.8% compared to 7.3% in 2008.

Overall, state tax revenue was $65.0 million in 2009, down from $65.4 million in 2008.
