Wyoming: A State of Financial Opportunity

Wyoming is becoming recognized by both domestic and international citizens as one of the most favored states in the U.S. – and in many cases, in the world – in which to maintain trusts.


Near-perpetual trusts are possible here potentially avoiding transfer taxes for up to 1000 years.

Tax Advantages

Some benefits of locating your trust in Wyoming include:

  • No state income tax on trust or personal income
  • No state gift or inheritance tax
  • No tax on out-of-state retirement income
  • No corporate income tax
  • No excise tax
  • No tax on mineral ownership
  • No intangibles or personal property tax
  • Low property tax


Wyoming privacy laws allow you to keep your personal and trust information out of the public domain.

Asset Protection

Wyoming allows broad asset protection by recognizing spendthrift provisions written into trusts, including self-settled trusts where the trust creator is also a beneficiary.


You don’t have to live in Wyoming to establish or migrate a trust here.  Appointing the Bank of Jackson Hole as your Wyoming sited fiduciary may be all that’s necessary.

Investment Flexibility

Wyoming expressly provides for directed trusts where assets and investments can be managed by a family office or managers other than the administrative trustee.

The Kiplinger Report ranked Wyoming as the Most Tax-Friendly State in the U.S.
