Mesquite, NV: Where Your
Business Is A big Deal.
Nevada’s tax advantages:
Nevada ranks a very favorable third in the Tax Foundation’s 2012 Business Tax Climate Index, an independent ranking of states in five areas of taxation: corporate taxes; individual income taxes, sales taxes, unemployment insurance taxes, and taxes on property, including residential and commercial property.
The Tax Climate Index comparison to neighboring states is significant: California ranks 48th, Arizona 27th, Idaho 21st, Oregon 13th and Utah 10th.
In addition to the Tax Climate Index, Nevada ranks second in the nation for lowest state and local tax burden – an estimated 7.5% of income.
Unlike nearly all other states, Nevada has no Corporate or Personal Income Tax – what you earn is what you keep and what you have available to re-invest.
The state’s historically strong logistics and distribution business sector is as much a statement of tax policy – no Inventory Tax – as it is of the excellence of its air, rail and highway arterial infrastructure and proximity to major markets and ports.
There is also no Franchise Tax or Unitary Tax, which means you don’t pay for the privilege of being in business in Nevada, or for being in Nevada and operating components of your business elsewhere.
Finally, Nevada has no Estate or Inheritance Tax, which makes it attractive to retirees and others with substantial estates.
Nevada business incentives:
For businesses in key industries willing to make multi-year commitments to jobs and capital investments, Nevada offers an attractive package of incentives through the Governor’s Office of Economic Development. The incentives include:
- Catalyst Fund, a $10 million fund that was created by the 2011 Nevada Legislature to aid with business relocation and expansion. Applications for consideration are available through the state’s regional development authorities.
- Sales and use tax abatements on qualified capital equipment purchases, with reductions in the rate to as low as 2%.
- Modified business tax abatements of 50 percent of the 1.17% rate on quarterly wages exceeding $85,000.

- Real and personal property tax abatements of up to 50% for up to 10 years for qualified recycling businesses.

- Employee hiring incentives under the Silver State Works program, of up to $2,000 for each state-qualified employee hired.
