A 2009 ATRA study of the effects of Prop. 203 found that its passage decimated revenue flowing to a pair of health-care-related funds that rely on tobacco taxes. The Tobacco Tax & Health Care Fund and the Tobacco Products Fund together lost over $50 million in funding from 2006 (the year Prop. 203 passed) to 2008.

Senator Mike Lee of Utah has proposed adding a child tax credit of $2,500 per child, which is in addition to the existing child tax credit of $1,000 per child. This week’s map shows which states benefit most from the existing child tax credit, in terms of the average dollar amount per tax return. Utah gets far and away the biggest benefit, at $665 per tax return, followed by neighboring states Idaho, at $498 per tax return, and Arizona, at $495 per tax return.
