The Wyoming Liberty Group is working to alert the general public and elected officials to the fact that there is no way tax increases in any form on the state’s shrunken tax base can keep government-as-usual afloat. Wyoming, like other mineral producing states, grew oversized governments in the days of mineral booms. In the face of a likely permanent downturn in the energy sector, the Group provided information to the 2017 Legislative Session as they voted down all tax increases. Excise taxes, real estate transfer taxes, sales taxes, income tax, property tax, and eliminating tax exemptions were on the table, and the list grows. The Group need a change of direction. With generous help and expertise from the national nonprofit community it is putting together specific proposals to give Wyoming a constructive way forward.
