Higher Taxes in Washoe County? You Decide.
The Washoe County Commission is hearing from the public TUESDAY, JULY 23 at 7:00 PM on whether or not to increase both property and sales taxes as it relates to Assembly Bill 46. In passing the buck on this tax increase, the Nevada Legislature is essentially asking the County Commission to turn the county’s checkbook over to the Washoe County School Board, a board that does not report to the Commission. Commissioners will be accepting public testimony, and your voice is essential in this debate.
The Washoe County Commission is located at:
The dangerous precedent that Assembly Bill 46 sets will put Nevada’s constitutionally mandated 2/3rds vote to increase taxes in serious jeopardy. It is important that the Washoe County Commission hear from YOU, letting them know that you are opposed to this circumvention of the Nevada Constitution. The outcome of the action taken by the Washoe County Commission solely depends on YOU, the taxpayer.
