Under Title 7 of the Nevada Revised Statutes, every entity doing business in the state of Nevada, with few exceptions, is required to maintain a state business license. These licenses were previously issued by the Nevada Department of Taxation, but as of October 1, 2009, the process will be handled by the Secretary of State’s office.
Your state business license costs $200 and must be renewed annually. Even if you qualify for one of the exemptions, you must still submit the license application, without payment. Failure to do so may result in your business being listed as “In Default” on the Secretary of State’s website.
