    Resale Certificate

    This form must be used when the holder of a sales tax permit purchases something that he will later resell. It allows the permit holder not to be charged tax. Remember that if you are purchasing something for your own use that you will not resell, you must pay the sales taxes due.

    Nevada Business Registration

    The universal application is used by the state and several counties. The supplemental application is used by the Department. This download comes with instructions. Both the Nevada Business Registration and the Supplemental Application must be completed to issue your Sales Tax/Use Tax Permit.

    One Time Event Application

    This is the application required for the promoter to complete to obtain a permit for a one-time event.  This application and vendor list must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the start of the event.  Upon receipt of a completed application and list of vendors, the Department will issue a permit. The permit will be issued to the promoter and sent via email, mail, pick-up or fax.  This form is for use only by promoters.  If you are an exhibitor or vendor, contact your promoter directly.

    Instructions for completing the excel spreadsheet should also be downloaded

    Voluntary Disclosure of Failure to File Return

    If a taxpayer fails to file a return and he wishes to disclose that fact voluntarily, the taxpayer or his representative must file with the Department an application for voluntary disclosure before the Department has initiated an audit or investigation of the taxpayer. The form to do so is available by clicking on the icons to the right.

    Request for Waiver of Penalty and Interest

    Pursuant to NRS 360.419, a request may be made if failure to make a timely return or payment is the result of circumstances beyond your control and occurred despite the exercise of ordinary care and without intent. Your request for waiver or reduction of interest and/or penalty must include the facts upon which you are basing your claim. Please attach any documentation you believe supports your claim.
