Relocating to Las Vegas?
Each month 2.5 million visitors and 6,000 new residents flock to Las Vegas to enjoy its warm climate, fabulous resorts, unparalleled entertainment, southwestern lifestyle and economic prosperity. The current population is estimated at 1.6 million. Las Vegas has continued to rank first nationally in employment growth since 1995, according to the Arizona State University Economic Outlook Center. With Clark County's consistently low unemployment rate, Las Vegas is projected to maintain its position well into the millennium.
Because tourism adds up to nearly one-third of the state's annual tax revenue, business owners are not subject to corporate income tax or franchise, inventory or unitary taxes. Residents pay no personal income tax. The U.S. Commerce Department's Economic Analysis Bureau ranks Las Vegas as the top metro area for income per capita, with an annual growth rate of 2.3%.
If you're planning to relocate, Las Vegas should be at the top of your list of desirable locations.
