Supporters To Refile Education Tax Initiative
(Carson City, NV) – Supporters plan to refile a business tax proposal later this week.
Gary Peck with the Nevada State Education Association says a section of an initiative that was struck down by a Carson City judge will be removed, and backers will work to collect more than 72,000 signatures by the November 13th deadline.
The plan calls for a 2% tax on businesses that make at least $1 million a year. The NSEA says it will generate as much as $800 million a year for public education.
