It’s Tax Day at the Nevada Legislature.
This afternoon, Gov. Brian Sandoval will present his much-debated business license fee proposal to the Senate Revenue and Economic Development Committee. All other Senate and Assembly hearings have been canceled, to allow lawmakers from both houses to attend.
Sandoval will personally pitch his idea to turn the state’s $200 business license fee into a progressive tax based upon gross revenue, ranging from $400 up to more than $2 million. It’s his preferred alternative to pay for nearly a billion dollars worth of increased spending on education.
