While Nevada may appear to the outsider as the last of the Wild West -- a place where anything goes, a local business-owner will tell you otherwise. The state's low tax-rate and easy incorporation laws may make it attractive to entrepreneurs, but that's not because of any shortage of licensing. Nevada's state, county and city governments regulate a multitude of businesses and collect just as many fees. The benefits of the Wild West are available to those who apply.
In Nevada, food trucks are sweeping the nation. As trucks have changed from standard pre-prepared hamburgers, sandwiches and tacos to gourmet and specialty foods, people around the country have jumped on the food truck bandwagon. However, these popular, low-overhead businesses have no shortage of licensing and permitting required. Often numerous state, county and city licenses are needed including several environmental health permits.
