North Dakota: One of the Best State's For Business


North Dakota ranks number three in a list of "America's Top States For Business."

Kelvin Hullet with the Bismarck-Mandan Chamber says our state is doing many things right from the tax, legal and regulatory environment.

Hullet says the legislature and regulatory agencies are doing a great job in creating business friendly environments and helping businesses succeed.

South Dakota ranked number one in the national study, Hullet says that could be because South Dakota doesn't have a state income tax.

"And so that greatly enhances their competitive environment, we've lowered taxes dramatically in North Dakota, this last session we saw taxes go down by more than a billion dollars, but bringing taxes down still doesn't quite compete with not having a tax," Kelvin Hullet said.

In 2012 North Dakota ranked number five in the CNBC study.
