Wyoming is growing a lot of interest among retirees due to favorable cost of living and tax rates. Not only is this state generally low in taxes for the entire population, it is also one of the best for retired individuals. With zero state income tax, retirees can expect to pay a low sales tax of about four percent, which is one of the best in the nation. There is a gas tax of 24 cents for every gallon, but this is almost half of the nation’s average. This is a pretty quiet state for anyone who enjoys owning land and retirees can also enjoy the lowest tax for beer in the nation.
