    Taxable Sales Fall in Clark County for the Month of February 2013

    Of course, when one sees all the businesses not paying sales tax of any sort, I am not a bit surprised. Many businesses conduct business without a business license in Clark County, Nevada. Further, many businesses do not have a tax certificate and pay no sales tax. Many of these businesses are operated by illegal immigrants and transact business in cash completely. Additionally, they pay no federal income tax of any sort.

    Illegal immigrant have busted Clark County, Nevada. They have busted UMC Las Vegas. Clark County does not understand the meaning of lawbreaker and stabilize and deport.

    According to reports, most of the HUD properties in Clark County, Nevada, are occupied by illegal immigrants.

    Illegal immigrants attend the public schools in Clark County, bringing the learning process to a standstill because they do not speak, read, and write English. This is why Nevada has the lowest high school graduation rate in the nation.

    Throwing more money to the Clark County School District will not resolve problem. What will resolve the problem is deportation.

      Taxable sales rise in Nevada, stay flat in Clark County

      By JENNIFER ROBISON
      LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
      Nevada’s taxable sales numbers showed mixed results in February.

      Statewide taxable sales, or sales of tangible goods by businesses, rose 4.2 percent year to year in February, jumping to $3.36 billion, the state Department of Taxation reported Thursday.

      But in Clark County, sales were mostly flat, falling 0.1 percent to $2.14 billion.

      Many consumer-oriented categories posted local gains in the month, with sales inside furniture stores, clothing retailers and car dealerships rising. But the single-biggest category — bars and restaurants, which account for roughly a quarter of all spending — fell 4.4 percent and helped drag down overall countywide results.

      After several months of improvement, local construction spending slumped as well.

      Clark County was one of just four Nevada counties that posted lower year-to-year taxable sales. The others were Esmeralda, Lincoln and White Pine counties.

      Gross revenue collections from sales and use taxes, which help fund prisons and schools, were down 2.34 percent year over year in February, to $265 million.
