In the first quarter of each year NCSL releases its annual "State Tax Actions" report. The latest report showed net revenue changes were minimal and the largest net tax change was a net increase in sales and use taxes of $847.1 million.

To illustrate what tax actions states are taking, NCSL put together a database detailing the states’ tax changes. The database includes all actions enacted from 2015 through 2018.
