Nevada legislature seeks to attract
more private equity investments

This is only one
of many incentives to spur economic
growth in Nevada. According to the
Nevada Governor's Office of Eco-
nomic Development, the Silver State
is number one for economic develop-
ment projects in terms of job
creation, retention and training.
Favorable tax incentives consistently
help distinguish Nevada as one of the
most “business friendly” states. With
no corporate or personal income
taxes, nor inventory, franchise,
unitary and special intangible taxes,
Nevada was ranked third in the
nation in the Tax Foundation’s State
Business Tax Climate Index in both
2011 and 2012. The Small Business
Survival Index 2011-2012 listed
Nevada at number three in the
“policy environment for entrepre-
neurship” category. The state’s
infrastructure and proximity to all
major Western markets is also an
attractive draw for companies.
With over 100,000 passengers
daily, McCarran International
Airport is the nation’s seventh
busiest, demonstrating Las
Vegas’ importance as a
transportation hub.
Nevada’s
Golden Future?
Nevada is not only
attracting businesses from
around the globe but also a
broad range of cultural
activities. One highlight is
the yearly pilgrimage of
some 60,000 festival lovers to
Burning Man, a music and
culture festival in the middle
of the desert. Moreover, Reno,
Tahoe and the Las Vegas’ strip offer
a broad range of art and cultural
programs and they regularly host the
most famous artists in entertainment.
With so much to offer within its
borders, the Silver State’s future
seems golden, indeed.
