The language that appeared on the ballot:

Explanation

The Sales and Use Tax Act of 1955 exempts from the sales tax purchases of tangible personal property made by certain public, religious and charitable entities. This amendment provides an express exemption from taxes on sales of any tangible personal property made by the same organizations. The law specifies that such entities are the United States, any unincorporated agency or instrumentality of the United States, certain incorporated agencies or instrumentalities of the United States, the State of Nevada, any political subdivision of the State of Nevada, or any organization that is created for religious, charitable, or eleemosynary purposes and meets other, specified criteria. If this proposal is adopted, the Legislature has provided that the Local School Support Tax Law and the City-County Relief Tax Law will be amended to provide the same exemption. A "yes" vote amends the Sales and Use Tax Act of 1955 to provide an express exemption from the sales tax for tangible personal property sold by these entities. A "no" vote is a vote to disapprove the exemption and retains the Act as it is currently written.

Fiscal note

Financial Impact-No. The proposal would provide an express exemption from the sales tax for any tangible personal property sold by certain governmental, religious, and charitable entities. This proposal would have no adverse fiscal impact because it reflects historical interpretation of statute by the Department of Taxation.[1]
