What constitutes a governmental entity for the purposes of the Nevada State Business License exemption?
A “governmental entity” is an incorporated or unincorporated agency or instrumentality of the United States government or any state government; a corporation wholly owned by the United States government; or county, city, district, or other political subdivision of a state. Only entities that fall under this definition may claim the 001 exemption.
This does not include contractors that are associated with a governmental entity due to the fact that they have contracted with a federal, state, local governmental agency.
All entities whether they receive a State Business License, Exception or Exemption are assigned a Nevada Business Identification Number. This number is important for being able to register with State and local agencies in Nevada.Note: SilverFlume Nevada’s Business Portal guides the customer through the registration steps, including registering at the Nevada Department of Taxation and other agencies. Businesses are advised to complete all steps in the registration checklist regardless of the Secretary of State’s exception or exemption.
