Nevadans and the federal income tax
According to the latest state fiscal fact by the Tax Foundation, 35 percent of tax filers in Nevada do not pay a federal income tax. This includes individuals that have zero net liability as well as those that receive transfer payments such as the Earned Income Tax Credit. (A family of four with income up to $52,000 may have no federal income tax liability at all.) Individuals who do not file income tax returns are not calculated into this percentage. According to the Tax Policy Center, 47 percent of all American households pay no federal income tax.
At 35 percent, Nevada has the 25th highest percentage of filers that do not pay federal income taxes.
