State personal or corporate income tax

Wyoming and South Dakata are the only states that do not levy a corporate income or gross receipts tax. In addition, Wyoming is one of the 7 states that does not levy individual income tax.

Tax on out-of-state retirement income

The Equality State is tax-friendly to all residents, especially retirees. There is no income tax, and sales taxes are low. Thanks to abundant revenues that the state collects from oil and mineral rights, Wyoming residents shoulder one of the lowest tax burdens in the US, according to the Tax Foundation.

Low property taxes

The property taxes in Wyoming are the 9th lowest in the nation and based on the assessed value. The median property tax on the state’s median home value of $213,300 is $1,247.

Seniors who meet income requirements are eligible for a refund of up to $900 ($800 for single filers) of property taxes, utilities and sales/use taxes.

Low state sales tax

4% state tax rate. The average local tax rate is 1.36% for a combined rate of 5.36%, according to the 2019 Tax Foundation report..

Dynasty trusts

Dynasty trusts are permitted to shelter assets from generation to generation.

Closely Held LLC

A Wyoming Closely Held LLC is one of the hidden gems of LLC asset protection. There are a lot of smart lawyers in Wyoming who have lobbied to insert the country’s strongest LLC asset protection laws into the Wyoming LLC. Given the lack of businesses in Wyoming outside the energy and natural resource sectors, the revenue made from Wyoming business formations is an important income stream for the state.

Saw this familiar exercise (we’ve been though the class 20 years ago) at the Ranching for Profit seminar at #rancholme last evening where we sponsored the final supper for the school. Young ranchers from many states were in attendance and gaining valuable profit tips for ranching. #ranchingforprofit #youthinagriculture #proudsupportersofranching #ourbrandisourreputation #cowboyethics #codeofthewest  @ranching4profit @tminnocents @kirklohof @victoriahaunhomes_land307
At the 2021 WSGA Summer Convention in @visitsheridan this was a good reminder today of the value of rangeland grazing by cattle. Besides the economics of improving range conditions, just the basic facts that 800 million acres of land produce forage only edible by a ruminant animal and we feed the world by using and caring for these resources. #cattlearegoodfortheearth #cattlearegoodfortheenvironment #eatbeef #wyomingstockgrowersassociation #ranchersfeedtheworld #rangelandmanagement #ranchlife #thankarancher #thankarancherforyourbeef #beefisgoodforyou #cowboyethics #thewyomingway #codeofthewest #ourbrandisourreputation #wydopenwyoming  @wyomingstockgrowersassn @galenchase @victoriahaun307 @kirklohof
