Alaska is low because it is generating income from natural resources (no need to tax incomes). (Probably also true of Wyoming, South Dakota, Oklahoma and, maybe, Montana). Delaware generates a large amount of money from corporate fees. Florida raises money by taxing tourists rather than residents. So a lot of these--but not all--are outliers based on unique circumstances. The absence of Nevada with its income based on gambling and tourism is surprising.
