Colorado in the Top 10 for States With the Most Millionaires
It's not hard to imagine why. Last year, research revealed that you have a higher chance of becoming a millionaire in Colorado than in 30 other states.
So, it shouldn't be surprising that new data shows Colorado has some of the most millionaires in the U.S.
According to Stacker's report via TheFW.com, Colorado residents filed 2,872,240 tax returns in 2020, and 11,020 of those returns had an adjusted gross income of $1 million or more.
This means that 38.4 of every 10,000 Colorado 2020 tax returns indicated millionaire status.
TheFW.com notes this data doesn't cover anyone who didn't file an individual income tax return; however, it's safe to say Colorado isn't lacking in millionaires à la West Virginia, Mississippi, New Mexico, Kentucky, and Arkansas — the states with the least millionaires.
So, who's beating Colorado?
Stacker reports that Washington, Florida, Wyoming, New Jersey, California, New York, Massachusetts, and Connecticut have the most members in the million-dollar club, while Washington, D.C., takes the top spot.
