Wyoming did not rank well in recent report cards released by the nonpartisan Tax Foundation this week. The Tax foundation reported good grades for low corporate and individual tax rates, a fair rating for sales taxes but what it termed “troubling marks” for unemployment insurance which placed the state 24th in the nation, and property taxes, which put the state 35th nationally. Furthermore, the report quoted the Mercatus Center report which ranked only California and Hawaii lower than Wyoming. That report looked at the state’s policies on guns, alcohol, marijuana, crime and a variety of other social issues as well as the state’s fiscal and regulatory policies. That report says overall, the state this year ranks 36th in personal and economic freedom – down from 31st just two years ago – largely citing falling personal income for the decline.
