AND…it continues to be in the top lists of places to do business. But don’t just take our word for it!
According to an article in the 2015 publication by Wyoming Business Connections Titled “BEST IN CLASS”, by Ron Starner, “Trying to list Wyoming’s most important business climate attributes is sort of like trying to name the most scenic vistas in the Cowboy State. The list gets long pretty quick.”
Wyoming has definitely set itself apart when it comes to the business environment of other states.
When the Tax Foundation released it’s last annual report Wyoming Governor Matt Mead was quoted as saying “Wyoming has earned it’s reputation of being the best place for business. We have focused on reduced regulatory burdens and increased policies that promote growth. “
On the last day of the 2015 legislative session, the largest tax increase in Nevada’s state history was passed by the Senate in an 18-3 vote. Republican Governor Brian Sandoval was pleased to announce the passage of the tax plan, which will bolster public education by more than a billion dollars.
Part of the increases include entity renewals with the Secretary of State. Effective July 1, 2015 all Nevada entities will pay an increased Annual List fee of $25. In addition, Corporations have an increase of $300 for the state license fee.
Previously the minimum Corporation renewal fee was $325 ($125 for Annual List of Officers and $200 for the state business license). All Corporations will now pay $325 more per year in Nevada., bringing the minimum renewal fee to $650. Any Nevada entities that are due in July and August may renew by June 30th to avoid the fee increase.
Wyoming Governor Matt Mead recently signed a bill to expand the duties of the Wyoming Infrastructure Authority (WIA). Previously the WIA’s duties primarly focused on electricity but the new bill is said to include “electric and energy transmission infrastructure.”
According to a recent publication by the Wyoming Business Report, “the change is primarily designed to give the agency a greater role in the development of coal infrastructure, particularly the kind that would allow state producers to more readily export coal from proposed deepwater ports that are under heavy public fire.”
The apparent goal is to expand the WIA’s role without stepping on the toes of other agencies that fall into the category of “energy transmission”-such as the Wyoming Pipeline Authority- as well as improving on the amount of coal export.
