Best States To Do Business
Yes, we absolutely love Wyoming. Why?
- It’s incredibly beautiful here
- The people are friendly
- 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. “
Here are some of the reasons Wyoming has been at the top of many lists time and time again.
- Wyoming is fiscally conservative. According to the 2015-2016 Supplemental Budget Report, the state boasts a $2 Billion budget surplus.
- AAA credit rating
- Wyoming is also investing in transportation and Internet Infrastructures
- Reduced regulatory burdens
- Low corporate filing fees
- Most business friendly tax climate

Nevada Doubles Minimum Corporation Renewal Fees- Effective 7/1/15
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.
See the Nevada Secretary of State news release of 6/12/15 for verification. https://nvsos.gov/index.aspx?recordid=1823&page=23
