(KSTU) -- The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy released a report showing how every state and the District of Columbia use tax policy in regressive and progressive ways.

Their conclusion: all but five states and the District of Columbia have regressive systems, meaning they favor the wealthy over middle and/or low-income earners.

While Utah is among the regressive states, you'll see in the report above their Utah does is less regressive than most states.
