Wyoming county ranks among richest in the U.S.

By  | 

Cheyenne, Wyo. - The numbers are in and Wyoming is home to the second richest county in the United States.

It’s no real surprise to anyone in the Cowboy State that that county is Teton (home of Jackson Hole).

According to IRS filing records, Teton County has average interest dividend income per federal taxpayer of $36,617. That towers above the Wyoming county with the next-highest level of interest dividends, Sheridan County. There, the average is $3,892. Across the U.S., the average is $1,661.

Here’s a look at the Top 5 Richest Counties in the U.S.:
McMullen County, Texas
Teton County, Wyo.
New York County, N.Y.
Glasscock County, Texas
Marin County, Calif.

It’s interesting to see that although Wyoming is the least populated state, it’s ranked sixth for states where the highest incomes reside.
