I read the article concerning how the new and growing remote workforce is good for Sheridan.

Before we assume this “growth” is good for Sheridan it should be considered in the context of Michael Madden’s Feb. 9, 2021, column in WyoFile, “The Catch-22 that’s Bankrupting Wyoming.”

He points out, “The Wyoming Taxpayers Association, government agencies and other organizations suggest that an average Wyoming household receives about $27,000 in services each year but only pays about $3,000 to $3,500 in primarily property and sales and use taxes. Again, the difference used to be made up by the taxes that commercial and industrial businesses and in particular the mineral industry pay.”
