HomePoliticsNV DEMS’ DIESEL TAX INCREASE COMING HOME TO ROOST Politics NV DEMS’ DIESEL TAX INCREASE COMING HOME TO ROOST June 20, 2022 As part of the Dems’ green new deal, they passed tax increases on diesel in the 2019 Nevada Legislature. With Diesel hitting $7 a gallon in Nevada will their vote hurt them in the coming elections or will our loser Republicans fail to use the issue? A 2019 state law authorizes county commissions in counties with fewer than 100,000 people (which covers 14 out of the 17 counties in Nevada) to add a tax on every gallon on diesel fuel purchased. So Nevadans have our Governor and Democrats to thanks for increasing the price of food and everything else delivered on a truck. And don’t forget trucks traveling through those counties to Las Vegas must now also pay the increase Dems’ new Nevada Diesel fuel tax.
