From the abstract:
This report shows that states could generate large amounts of additional revenue to meet public needs by fixing inequities in state tax codes. Taxing the top one percent at the same rate as the middle fifth of taxpayers would generate $68 billion in additional revenue, while taxing the top fifth at the same rates as the middle fifth would generate $128 billion.
