Colorado has a highly decentralized revenue-raising structure compared to many other states. Although combined state and local taxes are somewhat below the national average, local taxes are among the highest and state taxes one of the lowest. This reflects the strong philosophy of "local control" in Colorado. It has also given rise to so many governmental or quasi-governmental structures that one exists for every 1900 of Colorado's 4.3 million citizens!
