Wyoming Is A Tax-Friendly State
Indeed, Wyoming has much to offer besides its nature and unspoiled natural environment. The state is considered to be one of the most tax-friendly states in the country as there are no taxes on the sale of real estate, no income tax, and no tax on out-of-state retirement income.
Wyoming is an excellent place to retire, as there is no inheritance or estate taxes and relatively low property taxes. As such, home ownership at Snake River Sporting Club is appealing from a tax perspective, either as a primary home or for rental income when the property is not in use.
