Nevada has enacted legislation that requires the Nevada Department of Taxation (DOT) to establish a tax amnesty program for a period of not more than 90 calendar days ending no later than June 30, 2021. Under the program, the DOT shall relieve a person who has not paid a tax, fee or assessment of penalties and interest if during the amnesty program, the person requests relief from the DOT using the required form or method and pays the amount of the unpaid tax, fee or assessment in full to the DOT. If a person has not paid a tax, fee or assessment for multiple periods, participates in the program, and pays the amount of the unpaid tax, fee or assessment for less than all of the periods due, the DOT may grant relief for each period for which the person pays the amount in full. The amnesty program will only apply to taxes, fees and assessments due and payable before July 20, 2020. The amnesty program will not be available to any person who:
Per the legislation, a who requests or receives relief pursuant to the amnesty program may be selected for an audit and audited by the DOT in in the same manner as a person who does not request or receive relief pursuant to the amnesty program. (Senate Bill No. 3, effective July 20, 2020)
