Residents and visitors to Alaska paid $1.6 billion in taxes in 2018


Alaska collected $1.6 billion in taxes in 2018, a 38.1 percent increase from the previous year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Annual Survey of State Government Tax Collections (STC).

Most tax revenue came from other taxes ($931.2 million) and sales and gross receipts taxes ($253 million).

The STC survey includes five broad tax categories and up to 25 subcategories. Data is gathered from all 50 state governments and all dependent state-level entities.

The Census Bureau cautions that it sets the tax classifications among the survey categories, and they may differ from the classifications set by the state governments.

Below is a breakdown of how taxes were classified by the bureau and how much was collected.
