Tax Takeaways from the 2024 Budget Session with Senator Tara Nethercott and Representative Dan Zwonitzer

Cheyenne, WY — On Wednesday, March 27th, the grassroots initiative Wyoming Tax Facts and the Equality State Policy Center will co-host a Tax Facts: Lunch & Learn webinar reviewing the tax implications of the 2024 Budget Session with Senator Tara Nethercott and Representative Dan Zwonitzer. 

This session is the fourth installment of the Tax Facts: Lunch & Learn series and builds on the knowledge gained in preceding webinars. In the previous session, Former Governor Dave Freudenthal and Senator Cale Case described how our current tax structure determines the future of Wyoming communities. Watch that recording and previous recordings at 

Join us as we once again delve into the heart of tax policy, this time with veteran lawmakers who understand the state budget from both the spending side and the revenue side.

Senator Tara Nethercott’s Wyoming roots run five generations deep. As a lawyer who advocates for the businesses and people of Wyoming, her roles as a committed community member and state senator are a natural fit. She is in her second term in the Wyoming Senate, representing District 4, Laramie County.  Senator Nethercott serves on the Senate Appropriations Committee and has also chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Representative Dan Zwonitzer has served House District 43, Laramie County, in the Wyoming Legislature since 2005. At age 24, he was one of the youngest legislators ever elected to that body. Dan has served on nearly all twelve Legislative standing committees, and countless task forces and select committees, with an emphasis on Agriculture, Corporations, and Revenue. He currently chairs Labor, Health, and Social Services, and is a member of the Revenue Committee. Legislative colleagues are often guided by Dan’s institutional knowledge and detailed familiarity with the lawmaking process.

“Laws that reduce, increase, eliminate or add taxes don’t just affect our pocketbooks, and they don’t just affect the state’s budget,” notes Wyoming Tax Facts founder Sue Sommers. “They also directly affect our schools and the services that support our communities.” 

In this webinar, Senator Nethercott and Representative Zwonitzer will help us understand some of the complex calculations legislators made this year to balance the Wyoming budget, all while maintaining our state’s low-tax status.
