Nevada likely to ‘repay’ AT&T tax mistake through credits

We’re learning more about a costly mistake on the part of the state. The Nevada Tax Commission is scheduled to vote next week to refund AT&T $27 million the telecommunications company mistakenly paid in sales and use taxes. The tax commission says AT&T paid the tax on equipment that was stored in Reno but sold out of state, meaning the company should’ve been exempt. The commission called it an honest mistake on AT&T’s part and a reasonable request to ask for the money back. The Reno Gazette-Journal reports Nevada won’t likely have to pony up the cash-they’ll like offer AT&T credits over several years.
