Mix of Local Revenues Varies Across States

Notes: "Other taxes" includes license taxes, selective sales taxes (such as on tobacco and motor fuel), death and gift taxes, and small amounts of tax revenue classified as miscellaneous in Census data. Charges include fees local residents pay for various services such as water, sewerage, parks, and school activities, as well as levies on institutions such as airports and hospitals. Miscellaneous general revenue includes non-tax revenue from things including property sales, interest earnings, and fees, fines, and forfeitures within the criminal legal system.
