States that are most dependent on the federal taxpayers dollars.

“One big point of difference among state economies is the tax burden of the average citizen. This number varies greatly. But what are the reasons behind why some states tax their residents more or less?

If a state can afford not to tax its residents at high rates, there are multiple explanations. One is that their economic policies are sound and the state economy is doing well. But another is that the state gets disproportionately more funding from the federal government than states with harsher tax codes.

Americans have looked at federal assistance programs with growing scrutiny. According to a 2018 Rasmussen report, 61% of American adults think there are too many people receiving government financial aid. On the other hand, only 9% think not enough people are receiving funds. Regardless of overall trends, though, it is true that some states receive a far higher return on their federal income-tax contributions than others.”

1. I would bet good money that the funds received by illegals are not figured into this result.

4. This is calculated by the money that the feds send to state government

Not to individual state residents, legal or illegal.

California has, by far, the most illegals yet its the 35th most dependent state on the federal dollar. Why? Because California has the highest state tax rate and uses state money over federal money.

5. I'm not convinced that all of the costs are included in the analysis.

Sorry but studies like this predetermine the outcome they want and then structure the data to reach that outcome.

Is emergency room care for illegals who do not pay included in this? The hospitals deduct those costs from their federal taxes. They are still hard costs that someone has to pay for one way or another.

3. Its about state taxation

States with low tax rates are more likely to make up revenue shortfalls with federal transfer payments. States with high tax rates are less reliant on federal dollars.
