The Oldest Corporate Income Tax

This map from the national Tax Foundation shows Hawaii as the first adopter of the corporate income tax.  It isn’t the first state to adopt a corporate income tax, however.  That was Wisconsin in 1911.  Why?  When Hawaii adopted the tax, it was still a Territory.  It didn’t become a State until 1959.
