Washoe County! Have Your Voice Heard on AB46!
Washoe County Commissioners will soon decide whether to raise taxes on Nevadans. It is now time for YOU to send a message and reject the Nevada Legislature passing the buck to the Washoe County Commission to raise YOUR taxes. Nevadans are tired of being nickel-and-dimed left and right with higher taxes.
On Tuesday, November 12, the Washoe County Commission will once again discuss AB 46, which proposes to raise property and sales taxes in Washoe County. Americans for Prosperity-Nevada urges YOU to oppose the tax hikes on Washoe County residents associated with AB46.
During the 2013 Nevada Legislative session, you may remember that Nevada legislators passed the buck on raising taxes—hiking, among other taxes, the sales and property taxes in Washoe County.
The Nevada Legislature passed AB46, which skirted the Nevada Constitution’s 2/3rds tax requirement. In Nevada, tax increases require a 2/3 majority vote in the Nevada Legislature to pass – a rule that protects taxpayers like YOU from higher taxes.
In short, Nevada legislators chose instead to dodge their responsibilities in the Nevada Constitution and “pass the buck” onto local governments to raise taxes.
Leadership is about taking responsibility, not making excuses.
Voting to raise Nevada’s regressive sales tax rate will not only hurt working Nevadans like YOU, but will show Nevadans that politicians are once again evading their responsibilities in regards to raising taxes.
You can let the Washoe County Commission know how YOU feel about higher taxes by clicking this link and sharing your opinion before the Commission meets on Tuesday, November 12.
Join us and oppose any and all tax increases on Washoe County residents associated with AB46.
Don’t pass the buck. Don’t raise taxes on Nevadans.
