2010 Tax Amnesty Program

Governor Gibbons announced the 2010 Tax Amnesty Program, which will begin on July 1, 2010 and end on September 30, 2010.  The program was authorized by Assembly Bill 6 of the 26th Special Session of the Nevada Legislature and signed into law by Governor Gibbons.

For eligible taxes due and payable to the Department prior to July 1, 2010, the program provides for a one-time waiver of penalty and interest so long as the outstanding tax liability is paid in full during the amnesty period.

The tax types included in the amnesty program are as follows:  Sales & Use Tax, Modified Business Tax, outstanding Business License fees payable to the Department due on or before September 30, 2009 (The Secretary of State now administers the business license fee), Cigarette Tax, Other Tobacco Products Tax, Liquor Tax, Bank Branch Excise Tax, Insurance Premium Tax, Tire Tax, Live Entertainment Tax (non-gaming), Short-term Lessor (Passenger Car), and Exhibition Facilities Fees, Property Tax that are Centrally Assessed, and Net Proceeds of Mineral Tax.
