Unconstitutional District Court ruled Senate Bill 542 and 551 violates the Nevada Constitution
CARSON CITY, Nev. (Sept. 21, 2020) – NFIB, the nation’s leading small business association, applauds the Nevada District Court’s ruling on the unconstitutional tax increases passed in Senate Bill 542 and Senate Bill 551.
“The small business community in Nevada is benefiting greatly from this ruling,” said NFIB Small Business Legal Center Executive Director Karen Harned. “The legislation that was passed by Nevada’s Legislature last session included a devastating tax increase for small businesses. Nevada’s small business owners cite taxes as a top business problem and this legislation would have caused more harm than good.”
NFIB joined other business groups in a lawsuit challenging the passage of Senate Bill 551, which would have revoked the scheduled payroll tax deduction, and Senate Bill 543, which would have boosted DMV fees. Both measures were signed by Gov. Steve Sisolak.
The NFIB Small Business Legal Center protects the rights of small business owners in the nation’s courts. NFIB is currently active in more than 40 cases in federal and state courts across the country and in the U.S. Supreme Court.
