CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada cities say it might be time for Nevada to consider imposing a tax on services.

The Senate Committee on Legislative Operations and Elections is scheduled to consider Senate Concurrent Resolution 1 when it meets Thursday.

The resolution requested by the Nevada League of Cities and Municipalities says that since 2007 when Nevada’s economy began to implode, sales of services have become a bigger piece of the economic pie.

It adds that creating a tax on services would help stabilize one of Nevada’s main revenue bases and could allow a reduction in the sales tax rate paid on the purchase of goods.

If approved the study would be completed in time for lawmakers to consider when they convene in 2015.
