The Nevada State Education Association has launched its ballot initiative for a new state business margins tax. They hope to secure this new revenue for what many see as a grossly underfunded education system here in Nevada.

Today the Las Vegas Review Journal published an editorial calling the new 2% tax on businesses making over $1 million a “back-breaker.”
However, according to a study by the Tax Foundation, Nevada remains one of only three states that do not have a corporate income tax. In addition, many of the states that do have corporate income taxes have higher rates than the proposed 2% in the Nevada ballot initiative.
