I’ve long extolled the virtues of South Dakota to my friends around the country.  Typically my pontificating falls on deaf ears.  They visualize South Dakota as being a barren waste land next to the Arctic Circle, void of paved roads, airports, and the Internet.   If only they knew!

Outside of having the second strongest economy in the US, no income tax, no corporate tax, no inheritance tax, and continuously rated as one of the top “business friendly” states in the nation, we are also the best state in which to establish a trust.
