If you get good services for the extra in taxes, this shouldn't be labeled " the worst states". Some states have very high sales taxes and low or no income taxes.

I found interesting info: seven US states have no state income tax — Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming. New Hampshire and Tennessee don't have a state income tax either, but they do tax interest and dividends at 5% and 6%.
