A Comparison of State Withholdings

When you receive your paycheck, do you ever look at the state income tax withholding and think about relocating? I think all of us, unless we're lucky enough to live in a state with no income tax (AK, FL, NV, NH, SD, TN, TX, WA, WY) do that at one time or another. But where do we go? We decided to do a quick state income tax comparison by calculating annual withholding amounts for two "typical" employees. We realize that by comparing withholding amounts, rather than actual, calculated income tax liabilities, we are only estimating ranking among states but thought the resulting approximation would provide us some food for thought in our relocation consideration.
