Biz Tax Climate: Montana 8, Idaho 21

Montana has the eighth best business tax climate in the U.S. (Idaho #21, Oregon #13, Washington #7, and Wyoming #1), a national study has concluded. The Tax Foundation, a nonpartisan educational organization based in Washington, D.C., issues its rankings each year. Montana dropped a spot from seventh place in 2011 to eighth place in 2012. “Montana does have a good tax climate,” said Gov. Brian Schweitzer, a Democrat. “It's not new.” He said he believes Montana's tax rating should move up a notch or two next year because the study doesn't include a 2011 law that further reduces property taxes on certain business equipment/Charles S. Johnson, Missoulian State Bureau. More here.

Question: Are you surprised that Idaho's business tax climate is far worse than Washington's & the worst in Pacific Northwest?
