The West is Best

When it comes to business and tax climate readings – a new report from the Tax Foundation concludes, for the third year in a row, that Wyoming offers the most hospitable tax climate, and six of the ten best states are found in the west.

Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Washington and Wyoming – all states found in the Tax Foundation’s top ten, have no personal income tax.  And better yet, Alaska doesn’t even levy a sales tax!

Northeastern states have the dubious distinction of anchoring the “bottom” ten – notably, New York which finishes dead last, with Rhode Island, Vermont, Connecticut, New Jersey and Maryland not far behind.

And let us not forget California, which also languishes in the “bottom” ten.
