You might be at a gas station or local liquor store, and realize you’re running low on cigarettes. You consult the options behind the counter, hear the price from the store clerk and accept it as fact. While the expense isn’t likely subject to negotiation, it isn’t simply a function of profit or sales maximization either.

The fact is: Certain products carry an especially high ‘sin tax.’ Some sin taxes are still pretty low — like $0.02 per gallon on beer in Wyoming. Others, like the $14.24 per gallon liquor tax in Washington, are much higher.

To see how the U.S. states rank in terms of sin taxes levied, the team at Credio looked at taxes on tobacco, liquor, wine and beer in each state using data from TaxPolicyCenter.org and the Federation of Tax Administrators. The states are ranked from lowest to highest aggregate sin tax, with rates represented in dollars per unit.

Note: The N/A notation for a given tax designates that the state government controls all sales. Given the pricing controls that are in place for these states, no direct tax rate is calculated. The sin tax is then based on the tax rates for the other available categories. Revenue in these states is generated from various other taxes, fees, price mark-ups and net profits.
