DCRCC: We’ve received permission from the Community/Senior Center to sit at tables on Wednesday and Thursday mornings in their foyers to register voters and gather signatures for the Commerce Tax repeal effort.
We need volunteers from SNRW. Volunteers would be paired with a qualified voter registrar from the central committee. It’s just handier to have two people at the table instead of one.
NvFRW needs your helping hand on the Membership Committee. Together, we will strategically shape the future direction of NvFRW Membership for 2018 and beyond.
If you enjoy community engagement, networking, social media, or have other talents and time to share, please let us hear from you.

On the Proposed Property Tax Increase
SJR14 is a proposed Constitutional Amendment to change the way property taxes are assessed in Nevada. It passed the 2017 Legislature. It would need to pass the 2019 Legislature and then go on the ballot in 2020. State Senator Julia Ratti from Dist. 13 Reno-Sparks was the sponsor.
The information in quotes is from Michael E. Clark, Washoe County Assessor.
"SJR 14 removes the property tax abatement and all depreciation for the first fiscal year after the sale of the property."
"Examples of Potential Impact" Devastating!!!
"The property tax bill for a 1,200 square foot home built in 1964 in Old Northwest Reno would increase from $677 per year ($56 per month) to $2,264 the first year after the sale. This results in a $133 increase per month."
"A 3,900 square foot home built in 1991 in Juniper Trails with a current tax bill of $8,344 per year would increase to $13,699 resulting in a $446 increases to the buyer's monthly payments."
"Taxes with abatement were $7,706 (on a particular parcel in Washoe County) for 2017. Based on taxable value they would have been $17,766. With the implications of SJR14 the 2017 taxes on this parcel would be $21,165." TRIPLE!!!!
As you can see, SJR14 requires that property taxes reset at a much higher rate, more than doubling or tripling, each time a home or business property is sold. If you plan to stay in your home until you die you might not care...except...
Your friends, neighbors, family, children and grandchildren will have much less to spend on food, clothing, health care, transportation, and housing, pushing more Nevadans into poverty. If you have a business your customers will have less to spend. If you work for a business its customers will have less to spend so you may not get a raise or keep your job. This will impoverish Nevadans!
It is critical that we make this a campaign issue in 2018 so we can defeat this at the 2019 Legislature. This property tax Constitutional change was supported by the Nevada Association of Counties, which lobbies and represents ALL Nevada Counties. Therefore, ASK everyone running for County office or County Commission where they stand on SJR14 the Constitutional Amendment to raise property taxes. Also, ask everyone running for any statewide office and especially ALL State Senate and Assembly Candidates as they will be voting on SJR14* in the 2019 Legislature.

Protect Nevada Taxpayers, businesses and families, from the tax-burden of illegal immigration. According to the Center for Immigration Studies 62% of households headed by illegal immigrants used one or more welfare programs. The Federation for Immigration Reform estimates that the annual fiscal burden on Nevada taxpayers associated with illegal immigration to be about $630 million equating to an average annual cost of about $763 per native-born headed household in the State.
Nevada is becoming a Sanctuary State like California. The 2017 Legislature extended "driver authorization cards" for illegal immigrants (drivers' licenses) from an annual renewal to a four year renewal. There is no requirement to receive a driver authorization card in Nevada except to pass the test. Utah requires among other things that they have proof that they are here legally, that they sign for financial responsibility, and that they have a valid Tax ID number from the IRS. Why do we continue to burden taxpayers with the excessive costs of illegal immigration?
