Wyoming Ranked Nationally as a Great Place to do Business

Wyoming is the fourth-best place to do business in the United States according to an annual study of job retention and creation. Brent Pollina, vice president of Pollina Corporate Real Estate and author of the study, says the results add credibility to Wyoming’s claim as an extremely attractive place to do business. Wyoming’s ranking in Pollina’s Corporate Real Estate’s Top 10 Pro-Business for 2011 is a testament to its pro-business commitment, claims Wyoming Business Council CEO Bob Jensen.

With no individual income taxes and a third-place ranking for business income taxes, the state has an overall attractive tax position. Wyoming has the second lowest cost of electricity in the country and an excellent high-school completion rate as well as high teacher compensation. Wyoming also recently claimed the ranking of Best Performing State Economy (The Atlantic, 2010), and the Best Run State in America (24/7 Wall St., 2010).

Wyoming is a solid Pollina Top 10 Pro-Business state placing No. 4 for 2011. It has been a consistent pro-business winner in economic development, ranking among the Pollina Top 10 Pro-Business states since the study was started in 2004.
-Brent Pollina

Pollina’s study measures a state’s economic development prowess. It is considered to be one of the most comprehensive and unbiased of its type for evaluating and ranking states based on 32 factors controlled by state government, including taxes, human resources, education, right-to-work legislation, energy costs, infrastructure spending, workers compensation laws, economic incentive programs and state economic development efforts. Two new factors – state budget deficit and state property tax index – along with a comprehensive State Report Card were added to this year’s study.
