Most Tax-Friendly

There's no income tax in Wyoming. But what makes Wyoming unique is that it also has both low sales taxes and low property taxes. The state sales tax rate in Wyoming is a modest 4%. Municipalities can tack on up to 2% more, which isn't that much. As a result, the state's combined state and average local sales tax rate is the third-lowest of all the states with a sales tax, according to the Tax Foundation. Property taxes are modest, too, all the better to own a big ol' ranch in the Equality State.
