DESCRIPTION OF EFFECT

            This referendum asks the voters whether to approve or disapprove those portions of Senate Bill No. 483 from the 2015 Legislative Session which relate to the commerce tax. Pursuant to S.B. 483, the commerce tax is imposed on each business entity engaged in business in this State whose Nevada gross revenue in a fiscal year exceeds $4,000,000. The commerce tax is calculated by multiplying the amount of a business entity’s annual Nevada gross revenue (as adjusted by certain authorized deductions) which exceeds $4,000,000 by the tax rate applicable to the industry in which the business entity is primarily engaged.

            If this referendum is approved by a majority of voters, the provisions of S.B. 483 related to the commerce tax may not be amended, annulled, repealed, set aside, suspended or in any way made inoperative except by a vote of the people. If a majority of voters disapproves of this referendum, the provisions of S.B. 483 related to the commerce tax are void which will have the effect of eliminating the commerce tax. Disapproval of the provisions of S.B. 483 related to the commerce tax does not prohibit the Legislature from enacting future legislation that imposes a commerce tax.
