Yikes. This is one list you donít want to be on. A report by The Office of Revenue Analysis of the government of the District of Columbia places Bridgeport number one for the largest tax rate in the country when combining property, sales, auto and income taxes. According to the recently released study, a hypothetical Bridgeport family of three earning $75,000 paid $16,333 in taxes or nearly 22 percent of its income in 2012. The total does not include federal taxes.
Cheyenne, Wyoming had the lowest tax rate in the country, according to the study. The analysis shows that areas with lower tax rates come from states less densely populated, possibly because the cost of running those cities is less. The study measured cities with the highest populations in their respective states.
After Bridgeport, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Baltimore, Columbus, Providence, Portland, Maine, Louisville, Detroit and Wilmington, Delaware round out the top 10. The cityís mil rate, 41.85

It would be useful to see a breakdown of Bridgeport's expenditures on a per capita basis, compared to other cities. But anyway, a democrat-led city always leads to the same place- high crime, terrible schools, high taxes, and dilapidated infrastructure. It shows how well the democrat party has been able to hoodwink millions of uninformed people, who are under the 'impression' that democrats are the good guys.
