Mining for Taxes: Raising State Revenue in Nevada
By Nevada Business Magazine
Originally published: https://www.nevadabusiness.com/2021/07/mining-for-taxes/
It is well known that any debate in the Nevada Legislature over raising mining taxes has been a controversial topic since prospectors first struck gold in the 19th century. Previous efforts to raise the tax or reduce the ability of companies to deduct net proceeds have come up short.
Opponents have argued successfully that any increase in the tax rate would severely damage one of the state’s largest and most important industries, while supporters of eliminating the current tax structure believed mining companies benefited unfairly from that structure at the expense of the state.
That all changed this legislative session as mining lobbyists, a bipartisan group of lawmakers and the state’s largest teacher’s union reached an agreement that effectively doubles the amount of taxes on the industry, allowing lawmakers to approve the deal in the waning hours of the 2021 Nevada State Legislature.
