  • Summary
  • In 2013, federal spending in Wisconsin was slightly more than the amount state residents and business paid in federal taxes. However, on a per capita basis, federal spending here trailed the U.S. average by nearly 17%: The Badger State ranked 47th among the 50 states. Social Security and Medicare payments to the elderly are the largest component of federal spending. However, lack of federal aid to state and local governments here is one of the reasons Wisconsin’s total taxes were 12th highest in 2012.
