April 4, 2019

With tax season right around the corner and April being National Financial Literacy Month, it’s no surprise that everyone is talking about their finances.

According to a recent WalletHub study, Utahns are pretty money-wise, as the state ranks No. 2 in the nation for financial literacy.

Utahns have, according to the study, high financial planning and high financial knowledge, contributing to the high financial know-how.

New Hampshire, New Jersey and Minnesota rounded out the top five. Louisiana ranked the least financially literate state, with Alaska, Mississippi, Delaware and New Mexico filling out the bottom five.
