In Texas and the Austin region, the tax structure is fair, competitive, and designed to make companies feel welcome. Texas is one of only a handful of states with no individual income tax (a very attractive environment for transferring employees). Total state and local taxes averaged $4,045 per person in 2014, 13.5 percent less than the national average. Similarly, state and local taxes in Texas are low relative to income, amounting to $88 per $1,000 of personal income, compared to the national average of $101 per $1,000.
