Nevada State Tax Guide
State tax rates and rules for income, sales, property, fuel, cigarette, and other taxes that impact Nevada residents.
The Silver State offers residents a jackpot of tax savings. First, there's no state income tax, so you can cash in your paycheck or retirement savings account without worrying about a big state tax bill.
Nevada also has the seventh-lowest median property tax rate in the country. There are no estate or inheritance taxes in the state, either.
Sales tax is one area where Nevada could do better. The state imposes a 6.85% tax, and counties may tack on up to 1.53% more. As a result, the average combined state and local sales tax rate is 8.23% (that's the 13th-highest combined rate in the country). But, overall, Nevada is a very tax-friendly place for residents.
