Benjamin Franklin knew the only certainties in life are death and taxes. (He also ran the Connecticut Gazette for a short time.) And Connecticut’s tax laws are just as certain. Connecticut charges its citizens both income and sales taxes to raise funds for state projects and government agencies. The Nutmeg state’s income taxes require individuals in the state to pay the state a percentage of their income. The state also applies consumer taxes to a number of different products and services in order to raise revenues, including some so-called “vice” taxes on cigarettes, gasoline, and liquor.
