Effective 7/1/15 the Nevada Legislature declared that every Nevada business, Nevada business entity or business entity registered to do business in Nevada, with Nevada gross revenue in excess of $4,000,000 for its previous fiscal year, must now pay a Nevada Commerce Tax.
Under the new law, the Nevada Department of Taxation requires that every Nevada business or entity registered in Nevada must file a Commerce Tax Return Form annually even if there is no tax liability.
Forms and tax (if any) are due by the 45th day after entity’s fiscal year end.
Since most businesses and entities file on a calendar year basis, the Commerce Tax Return Form is then due on or before February 15th ater its tax year. Filing of this form and paying tax can be done online at https://www.nevadatax.nv.gov/web or by mail.
We developed this page and subsequent pages to assist Nevada business entities with this filing requirement.
