Interactive Map Shows Tax Burden on Upper Dublin Residents

Interactive map has tax burdens for state, local and sales tax for Philadelphia and its suburbs.

Pew Trusts has released an interactive map that shows the tax burden for Philadelphia and it's suburbs for a hypothetical family of two adults and two children.

The chart shows what a family pays in property, income and sales taxes in each municipality studied in 2000 versus 2012.

According to Pew Trusts, the median household income for the entire region in 2000 was $47,500, which has increased to $60,000.

In Upper Dublin Township residents who don't work in Philadelphia paid an average of 10.1 percent of their income in taxes (state, local, and sales tax) in 2000, but paid 12.5 percent of their income in taxes in 2012.

Based on the hypothetical family, that's a difference of $1,001 between 2000 and 2012.
