My knowledge of the Wyoming tax system began 40 years ago when I was elected to the state Legislature and was appointed to the Revenue Committee.

Taxes in Wyoming were based on a three-legged stool principle. The three legs were sales tax, tourism and property taxes, of which mineral taxes was a large component.
