Oregon ranks No. 2 on WalletHub's list of states with the fairest tax system. WalletHub analyzed and ranked the 50 states based on the fairness of their state and local tax systems, including income taxes, sales, excise and property taxes. 

See Slides Below: Top 20 States With the Most Fair Tax Systems 

The study conducted an online survey of 1,050 individuals to asses what Americans think a fair state and local tax system looks like. The results of the survey were then compared to the real structure of tax systems in all 50 states. 

Americans think a fair state and local tax system taxes high-income households at a higher rate than low-income households, according to WalletHub.

The study also revealed that conservatives and liberals generally agree on what a fair tax system looks like, but conservatives are more supportive of slightly higher taxes on the poor and lower taxes on the wealthy. 

While Americans generally think a progressive tax system is most fair, almost every state has a regressive state and local tax structure, according to WalletHub. 

The study found that both blue and red states overtax the poor and undertax the rich, relative to what Americans think is fair.
