There are plenty of reasons to be thankful for owning a home in Jackson Hole, Wyoming: the mountains, the rivers, two national parks and three ski resorts, art galleries and restaurants, a charming Western-style downtown, and a close knit, philanthropic-minded and fun loving community. As enviable as our lifestyle is here, reality does intrude occasionally, as it will in mid-April when we pay our taxes. But even in that area, we as Wyoming residents are better off than most. After all, Wyoming has been cited by Bloomberg Wealth Management magazine as the most tax friendly state in the country. We can stretch our hard-earned dollars further, whether buying real estate, leaving property to our heirs or buying a new mountain bike.
Wyoming is the most tax friendly state in the country: No tax on the sale of real estate, no state income tax, no tax on out of state retirement income, no state gift tax, no inheritance or estate tax, low property taxes, no excise tax, no tax on mineral ownership, no intangible taxes and dynasty trusts.
