Buying Real Estate in Wyoming: Taxes? What Taxes?

By Rebecca Stratton Subscribe to RSS | February 5th 2012 | Views:

Over the years, the state of Wyoming has been constantly on the top spot of the country's lists of most tax-friendly states. If you have to ask where in the world you can find a place that almost does not tax its people, it is this Cowboy State. In fact, one such tax the state government only requires of residents is property tax. But at an estimated one percent average tax rate, you may not feel its effects at all.

What state income tax? Wyoming joins the ranks of six other states that do not impose state income tax on its residents. As for the question "how does the state make up for it," they draw income from taxing other sources such as energy, in which the state ranks high in production. This is good news especially for retirees since they will have more money to spend on their necessities and other miscellaneous needs.

What inheritance tax? Inheritance tax, as the name implies, is the tax collected from inheriting a property or asset from a deceased owner. As of January 1, 2005, the state government has abolished the collection of inheritance tax as a result of the abolition of the Federal Estate Tax Law. In other words, the inheritor gets the full package of a certain property or asset, especially when it is in the form of cash.

What real estate sale tax? You can get real estate jackson hole wyoming has to offer for a lower price in this state because of the absence of tax for its sale. Although sales tax in the state exists; food, which is not consumed on the spot, and real estate are some of the commodities excluded from being taxed. Much of Wyoming offers an average of below $250,000 in real estate listing prices by county.

What state gift tax? If you are planning to give your real estate jackson hole wy residents have to someone, no need to worry about getting taxed. Somewhat similar to the absence of inheritance tax, a person can give his property to another individual without being taxed for the gratuitous transfer. However, unlike inheritance tax, the giver need not be deceased in order for transfer of ownership.

Although Wyoming still collects other forms of taxes, what makes the state tax-friendly is that it does not collect major taxes. Buying real estate jackson hole wyoming has to offer is a good choice when looking for a beautiful and affordable place to live. So the next time someone asks about a place where you pay almost no tax at all, tell them to go to Wyoming.
