Thursday, November 10, 2016

CARSON CITY, Nev. – Residents of Nevada has voted to exempt DME from the state sales tax. Question #4 passed overwhelmingly with 72% of the vote. “It’s a major win for the citizens of Nevada,” said Rich Pozesky, president of The Nevada State Association of Medical Product Suppliers, in a release. “This is only step one of the process; however, we are confident that this issue will eventually be law in our state.” Earlier this year, a coalition of HME providers gathered more than 100,000 signatures to put the issue on the November ballot. While the majority of voters voted in favor of the measure, it must pass two election cycles for it to go into effect.
