Case Synopsis

The Court considered whether an electrical utility company was entitled to a tax refund after it had paid taxes under an alleged discriminatory taxation scheme. The Court held that the company was not entitled to a tax refund because the company’s statutory construction argument regarding NRS 372.270 in conjunction with NRS 372.185 would create absurd results. Moreover, the company did not provide sufficient evidence demonstrating substantially situated competitors who benefited from the unconstitutional taxation scheme. Finally, the Court found that the company was not entitled to a tax credit for the money it paid to an out-of-state tax because the tax was not a sales tax.
