December 2, 2021

CARSON CITY, Nev. – The Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) Board approved nine companies that will receive $12 million in tax abatements. In return these companies are required to create 469 jobs in the next two years at an average weighted hourly wage of $25.22. That figure is expected to grow to 735 in five years. Additionally, these companies will make a capital investment of $145 million in the first two years of operation and generate $59 million in net new tax revenues over the next 10 years.

“I would like to welcome these new companies to Nevada and commend those who are expanding,” said Governor Steve Sisolak, who chairs the GOED Board. “We are moving Nevada forward. Since January of 2019, the 75 companies that have received abatements will create 11,341 jobs over five years. These companies are making a $2 billion capital investment and will generate more than $1 billion in new net tax revenues over the next decade.”

Six of the nine companies receiving abatements are new. Three others are expanding their operations. Five of the companies are in Clark County.

“We have had a very productive year coming out of the pandemic,” said GOED Executive Director Michael Brown. “After having 16 companies approved for abatements in September, the GOED Board approved nine more companies today.
