CHEER-Business Tax Climate Index rankings for 2011 have been released. New Jersey has moved up from the worst-in-the-nation ranking it has held for the last four years to 48th place. As the report notes with regard to New Jersey’s ranking change, “The principal change was elimination of the top two personal income tax brackets when the governor vetoed a measure that would have extended the existing, higher rates. After the veto, the top tax rate fell from 10.75% to 8.97%.”
