TOP 10


There are many reasons why people choose to make Jackson Hole their primary residence. Some of those reasons include the quality of life, surreal beauty, and luxurious amenities available in Jackson Hole. Other reasons are more practical and include Wyoming’s tax benefits. Bloomberg continues to rate Wyoming as the most tax-friendly state in the United States.

1. No state income tax

No state income means that you have more disposable income.

2. Dynasty trusts

You can shield your real estate from federal estate taxes in Wyoming for up to 1000 years through a dynasty trust which means multiple generations can use and enjoy the property without having to pay estate taxes or having to sell the property in order to pay the taxes.

3. No inheritance tax or estate tax

Wyoming repealed its estate tax as of January 1, 2005.

4. No state gift tax

You can “gift” property in Wyoming to your heirs without having to worry about paying a state gift tax.

5. No tax on out-of-state retirement income

Wyoming does not tax retirement income that is earned outside of Wyoming.

6. Low property taxes

Wyoming has very low property taxes compared to other states, and taxes are based on the assessed value of the property.

7. No excise taxes

You won’t pay state tax when you fill up your car or buy groceries in Wyoming.

8. No tax on mineral ownership

Wyoming does not charge owners a tax on their mineral ownership.

9. No intangible taxes

You do not have to pay a tax on financial assets like stocks and bonds in Wyoming.

10. No tax on the sale of real estate
