Taxation & Representation

Home sales in Teton County are picking up again, but not just because of the views, the whiskey, and the skiing. Because the mining and fossil fuel industries drop so much cash into Wyoming's state coffers, there's no income tax, estate tax, or taxes on real estate transactions, gifts, tangible assets, or out-of-state retirement income. This has pulled rich people and even accounting firms in from tax-heavy states like California, resulting in a 52% increase in luxury home sales from 2011 to 2012. [Jackson Hole Property Guide]
