A new report from New York Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli found that New Yorkers pay 30% more in federal taxes than the national average as residents of the Empire State sent roughly $24 billion more to the federal government last year than the state got back in federal spending.
New York generated almost $250 billion for the treasury during the 2017 fiscal year, that ended September 30, 2017. This amounts to $12,588 per person, that's 30% more per capita than the US average.
From the government, New Yorkers received only $11,372 per resident, a number that the comptroller study reported as "below average". Out of all US states, this ranks New York 47th for the difference between taxes paid by residents and federal spending received.
