Renewal of state license
- voluntary surrender of state license
1.Subject to the power of the Commission to deny, revoke, suspend, condition or limit licenses, any state license in force may be renewed by the Commission for the next succeeding license period upon proper application for renewal and payment of state license fees and taxes as required by law and the regulations of the Commission.
2.All state gaming licenses are subject to renewal on the first day of each January and all quarterly state gaming licenses on the first day of each calendar quarter thereafter.
3.Application for renewal must be filed with the Commission, and all state license fees and taxes required by law, including, without limitation, NRS 368A.200, 463.370, 463.373 to 463.3855, inclusive, 463.660, 464.015 and 464.040, must be paid to the Board on or before the dates respectively provided by law for each fee or tax.
4.Application for renewal of licenses for slot machines only must be made by the operators of the locations where such machines are situated.
5.Any person failing to pay any state license fees or taxes due at the times respectively provided shall pay in addition to such license fees or taxes a penalty of not less than $50 or 25 percent of the amount due, whichever is the greater, but not more than $1,000 if the fees or taxes are less than 10 days late and in no case in excess of $5,000. The penalty must be collected as are other charges, license fees and penalties under this chapter.
6.Any person who operates, carries on or exposes for play any gambling game, gaming device or slot machine or who manufactures, sells or distributes any gaming device, equipment, material or machine used in gaming after the person’s license becomes subject to renewal, and thereafter fails to apply for renewal as provided in this section, is guilty of a misdemeanor and, in addition to the penalties provided by law, is liable to the State of Nevada for all license fees, taxes and penalties which would have been due upon application for renewal.
7.If any licensee or other person fails to renew his or her license as provided in this section, the Commission may order the immediate closure of all his or her gaming activity until the license is renewed by the payment of the necessary fees, taxes, interest and any penalties. Except for a license for which fees are based on the gross revenue of the licensee, failure to renew a license within 30 days after the date required by this chapter shall be deemed a surrender of the license.
8.The voluntary surrender of a license by a licensee does not become effective until accepted in the manner provided in the regulations of the Commission. The surrender of a license does not relieve the former licensee of any penalties, fines, fees, taxes or interest due.
