In Wyoming, we take a different approach to encouraging business growth. Rather than have multiple taxes that are then mitigated only for some qualifying businesses, we keep the cost of doing business low by keeping the tax burden as low as possible for all businesses, both new and existing.
For example, Colorado has a “Job Growth Incentive Tax Credit” which provides a state income tax credit to qualifying businesses. Wyoming does not have a similar tax credit because there is no state income tax. The Tax Foundation again ranked Wyoming #1 for the 2022 State Business Tax Climate Index.
