New Jersey topped New York in a recent ranking of business friendliness performed by the Tax Foundation. However, the Empire State was the only one that New Jersey, coming in at 49th in the country, beat out.
The State Business Tax Climate Index examines 118 different variables in the five areas of taxation (major business taxes, individual income taxes, sales taxes, unemployment insurance taxes, and property taxes) and creates an overall score for each state. The states are then compared against each other and ranked accordingly.
The states earning the top spots in the 2013 Index included Wyoming, South Dakota, Nevada, Alaska, and Florida. Joining New York and New Jersey in the bottom five were Rhode Island, Vermont, and California.
