UNDATED – With Tax Day looming and Americans still figuring out the new tax code, WalletHub today released its 2020 Taxpayer Survey as well as its yearly report on the States with the Highest & Lowest Tax Rates (accompanying videos included) in order to help people better understand this confusing time of year.
