    Hi Dan,


    State and local franchise fees are classified as Taxes on Production and Imports: Other Taxes. As to the model’s estimation of the fees, please see the below notes regarding TOPI estimates.

    • Our source data on total TOPI taxes by state and by industry are collected at a more aggregate level (approximately 90 sectors) than the sectoring scheme of IMPLAN. We distribute TOPI by state and industry to detailed industries using national data and other proxy data.
    • Total TOPI taxes are industry- and place-specific, but the allocation of TOPI among its components, e.g., sales tax and property tax, is only place-specific.
    • For these reasons, we recommend constructing your own estimates of direct taxes whenever possible and using the model estimates for indirect and induced tax impacts.
