The Nevada School District Tax Waiver proposition appeared on the November 3 ballot in Vernon County for voters in this school district.

The proposed waiver sought to waive the 1999 approved sales tax so that it may continue to be collected. Proposition C was approved in 1999 and states that a sales tax will be collected, in the amount of 1 cent, and would go towards the funding of the schools in this district. The sales tax was scheduled to expire in 2009. The School district and proponents of the 2009 proposed waiver said they saw the pressing need for continued funding of the schools and hope residents see the tax as important to maintaining the standards present at the schools.[1]
