The state's teachers union today re-filed its initiative that would impose an $850 million a year business tax, a day after a Carson City judge invalidated a previous version.
District Court Judge James Wilson ruled Monday that the Education Initiative, filed by the Nevada State Education Association and supported by the AFL-CIO labor group, violated the state's law that initiatives deal with only one subject. Specifically, he took issue with a section that would have forced businesses to disclose the amount of the business margin tax, which would tax gross receipts on income over $1 million at 2 percent.
The new version of the tax does not include that provision, according to a spokeswoman.
