Advantages

Nevada’s economy is showing signs of bouncing back, including a reduced unemployment rate, increased jobs and personal income, and growth in the number of small businesses.

Challenges

Nevada imposes gross receipts taxes instead of corporate income taxes. Gross receipts taxes are thought to be more economically harmful than corporate income taxes, according to the Tax Foundation.

CEO Comments

“[Nevada] is very aggressive in bringing new business to the state.”

“Washington, Nevada and Montana claim to be business friendly, but they have high taxes, T & E costs, and laws favoring organized labor.”

“Nevada has a great balance of government involvement and the private sector. The living environment is excellent with excellent housing affordability. Workforce quality and availability is good up to the management level. A downside to Nevada is that it does not offer much in the way of a market to sell products in.”
