From the Nevada Women’s Lobby:

Alert:

Stop the budget massacre!

Join the Lobby in supporting new tax bills to save valuable Nevada programs!

What:

Assemblywoman Peggy Pierce has four revenue bills heading to hearings.

  • AB333: Increases taxes on tobacco and alcohol.
  • AB335: Modeled after similar effective laws in other states, this bill would create a services tax, which could generate revenue missing from declined sales.
  • AB336: Closes the loophole on outside corporations which don’t pay business taxes. Even with a lower rate than any such tax in surrounding states, this could do a lot to close Nevada’s multi-billion dollar budget deficit.
  • AB428: A net proceeds tax on mining. For decades, Nevada’s second largest industry has been able to get away with paying a pittance in taxes. It’s time they paid their fair share.
