Business Licensing Transfer of Power
The 2009 Nevada Legislature has taken further steps to consolidate responsibilities for business licensing in the office of the Nevada Secretary of State. Pursuant to Nevada Assembly Bill No. 146, the authority to issue state business licenses will be transferred from the Nevada Department of Taxation to the Nevada Secretary of State's office. The transfer will be effective on October 1, 2009. This transfer of responsibilities moves Nevada one step closer to the Delaware one-stop-shopping model for businesses.
