Wyoming State Tax Guide
State tax rates and rules for income, sales, property, fuel, cigarette, and other taxes that impact Wyoming residents.
Thanks to abundant revenues that the state collects from oil and mineral rights, Wyoming residents shoulder one of the lowest overall state and local tax burdens in the U.S. To start, there's no income tax in Wyoming. But what makes Wyoming really unique is that many other state taxes are on the low end, too.
The state's average combined state and local sales tax rate is the eighth-lowest in the country, according to the Tax Foundation. You won't pay high property taxes to own a home on the range, either. The statewide median property tax rate is the 11th-lowest in the U.S.
