Frank reported on the AMA Action Alert. Nevada Tax Commission is considering an unnecessary tax on all model aircraft/unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) weighing 55 pounds and less. WE need your help to stop this proposed burdensome taxation.
There are numerous concerns, including no exemptions for “model” or “hobby” UAS in the proposed amendment. We feel as though the taxation is unnecessary for all UAS operations, but at the very least an exemption should be granted for those operating as hobbyists under section 336 of Public Law 112-95 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012.
The Nevada Tax Commission is holding a Public Hearing on December 5th 2016 at 9:00 am at the Silver State Insurance Exchange located at The meeting Dec. 5 at 9am is to be held at 150 N Stephanie, Suite 100 Henderson Nevada, for more info:www:tax.nv.gov/boards/public meetings. The AMA encourage all AMA members in the area to attend this hearing, and voice their opposition to the proposed UAS tax.
The club members had lots of talk and questions.
Mike Deming said he doesn’t send out the club’s roster out to the members. Anybody have a problem with that? Does anybody object if I send out the roster to everybody? So it will be sent out to all club members.
