The perverse genius of legislators:
Nevada employers will soon be billed an average of $25 per employee per year to cover interest on loans taken to pay out jobless benefits.
The temporary fees come after the Legislature approved a plan to pay about $17 million in interest owed on loans from the federal government.
In other words, the fewer employees an employer laid off–or the more the employer hired back–the more it’s going to cost.
Next up: a sales tax on the number of miles not driven below 12,000 annually, an excise tax on items not purchased, and an energy penalty for sleeping with the windows open.
