In the second part of the table though, when you add federal taxes they jump up to the 4th most taxed state. I guess I'm a little unclear why unless it has something to do with the proportion of certain income classes or business/personal income.

From the web page:

"Follow each row to see how a state's ranking changes when federal taxes are added back in. Generally, high-income states rise because, with their high costs of living and commensurately higher salaries, they are hit harder by the progressive federal income tax."

Yeah, you pretty much got it right.
