Nevada State Personnel Watch gets over 10,000 hits worldwide

Our little Nevada ANTI-Corruption website has taken off and we’re celebrating our success with more updates and future demonstrations to promote the movement. We simply started the ANTI-Corruption movement as a grassroots effort with one cardboard sign and a cause to stand up to the corruption and relation in Nevada that has affected us personally.  We networked with other people who were also victims of Nevada’s web-of-corruption. See our stories – Mike Weston (Mike’s LawlessAmerica story) – Tonja BrownTy Robben (Lawless America video being produced and coming soon to expose the demonic rampant wholesale corruption in Nevada). Then there was the a new issue and cover-up by State of Nevada officials explained by Reno, NV KRNV mynews4.com NEWS. For now, please see our 2012 ANTI-Corruption Summer 2012 video.

We made professional signs and a one-of-a-kind 150 long X 4 foot tall CRIME SCENE BANNER and protested in front of the Nevada State Capitol buildings in the spring and summer of 2012.  Stay tuned as NV ANTI-Corruption adapts to our new version 2.0 round of protesting and exposing corruption in Nevada. We’re also covering other Nevada, U.S. and world issues on this website to attract a wider audience to broader issues covered by Infowars, Lawless America  and others. To all united against tyranny and treason, we salute you.

Please see our friend Guy Felton’s youtube “Nevadagate” series on Nevada Corruption with links posted below in this posting. Guy has put together about 10 videos explaining his perspective on the rampant, wholesale corruption in Nevada.  Topics include Judicial Corruption, Government Corruption to include AG Masto, Gov. Sandoval and much more.  Guy goes wide and deep into the issues and calls out these corrupt and criminal politicians.

Guy Felton’s youtube “Nevadagate” series on Nevada Corruption
Nevada government is permeated with a culture of corruption. Members of the state legislature meet for only 4 months every other year. This does not permit anything close to proper administration of the public affairs of Nevada’s 2.7-million residents.  Members of the upcoming 2013 legislative session are asked to answer tough-but-fair questions which might force changes for the better.

Nevada Department of Taxation – Past, Present & Future with Christopher G. Nielsen

Please see the earlier post on NV ANTI-Corruption Dept. of Taxation Protesting here:  https://nevadastatepersonnelwatch.wordpress.com/2012/07/25/july-2012-updates-continued-nevada-anti-corruption-targets-dept-of-taxation-for-fraud-and-retalation/ 

We’re working on a new video about the Nevada Department of Taxation tentatively titled – Nevada Department of Taxation: An orgy of CORRUPTION – Where did $250,000,000.00 million dollars go?

The content covers the department scandals under the Dino DiCianno administration up to the new leadership of Christopher G. Nielsen who was the Deputy Director under former Dino DiCianno regime. DiCianno “abruptly retired” in March 2011. Chris Nielsen was the General Counsel in the Office of Governor Jim Gibbons and as Senior Deputy Attorney General in the Office of the Attorney General for the state of Nevada.. Mr. Nielsen then reappointed Deputy Director to Taxation after Gibbons lost to Brian Sandoval.

NV tax director abruptly retires after audit flap

Nevada’s top tax man abruptly retired Friday, a day after he revealed his agency hadn’t audited mining industry tax collections in two years and lacked trained staff to determine if the mining companies were paying proper net proceeds taxes.

In a statement, Gov. Brian Sandoval thanked Dino DiCianno for his years of service and wished him well in his retirement.

“He has been a loyal and dedicated public servant for three decades,” Sandoval said.

The governor said Chris Nielsen, taxation deputy director, will lead the agency until a permanent replacement is found.

Sandoval asked Nielsen to prepare a transition plan and immediate strategy to resume auditing mine operators to ensure the proper payment of the net proceeds of minerals tax. He also directed the state’s Internal Audit Division to assist the tax agency.

In a hearing Thursday before the Senate Revenue Committee, DiCianno told lawmakers that his department only had two-and-a-half people to conduct audits, and that they relied largely on the companies’ revenue projections and reports in calculating taxes.

It prompted a terse exchange with Senate Majority Leader Steven Horsford, D-North Las Vegas, who at one point said he may “need to start taking blood pressure medication.”

DiCianno also said the governor was unaware of the lack of audits, but that he had asked his staff to “dust off the internal audit manual” and get up to speed.

Nevada’s mining industry, with gold prices soaring to record highs, is a shining target in the gloom of the state’s budget battles as the state tries to claw its way out of the Great Recession while leading the nation in joblessness, foreclosures and bankruptcies.

Also revealed during Thursday’s hearing were the business deductions the mining industry is allowed to take before declaring their taxable net income. The deductions include an array of expenses including advertising costs, severance payments, employee or worker bonuses and sales tax.

According to the taxation department, deductions for Barrick Gold Corp. will amount to $1.7 billion this year. These deductions lower the mining company’s taxable income to $1 billion. Were taxation based on gross income instead of net, the tax department’s report shows Barrick would face taxes on almost $2 billion in 2011.

The more things change, the more they stay the same…
Anyway, we found some old pictures which reminded us of the Texting scandal of former disgraced Nevada Jim Gibbons. Gibbons’ dedication to his office was called into question again six months later. On April 2, 2009, while appearing before a legislative panel to promote his renewable energy bill, Gibbons pulled out his cellphone and began texting. News stories used this incident to revisit the 860 messages he sent to his alleged paramour, and a 37-second video of him introducing himself to the panel, with a 17-second break in order to send the text message and refocus on the hearing was posted on YouTube

Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons broken Tax Pledge 

Source Wikipedia:

Jim Gibbons pledged during his 1996 campaign for governor to not impose new taxes on businesses or individuals in Nevada.[63] Gibbons broke his tax pledge on several occasions. The state’s Business Tax on employer’s payrolls which was initiated in 1992 was increased under Gibbon’s term and renamed the “Modified Business Tax”. Various mandatory fees and licenses administered by the Nevada Department of Taxation were also significantly increased under Gibbon’s term. Most particularly was the State of Nevada’s yearly business license fee. This license fee was doubled from $100.00 to $200.00. Due to the additional tax burden of the increased Modified Business Tax on Nevada’s small businesses during a downward business cycle, this tax was readjusted to a lesser rate by the 2011 Nevada legislative session during the leadership of Governor Brian Sandoval.
It was also discovered during the 2011 Nevada Legislative hearings that the Nevada Department of Taxation’s director, Dino DiCianno, never had the Tax Department under Gibbon’s leadership conduct Net Proceeds of Minerals (NPM) tax audits of mining operations within Nevada. Mr. DiCianno’s claim was that the Tax Department did not have qualified auditors capable of performing NPM audits. During Gibbon’s term market prices of precious minerals were at historical and significant high levels. The market selling price of Gold was in the $1,300 to $1,500+ per ounce range during Gibbon’s term. Gibbons was also a geologist and lawyer.
During Gibbons term Nevada lead North America in Gold and Silver production. Also Nevada was ranked No. 3 in the world for Gold production. After Mr. DiCianno’s testimony to the Nevada legislature that no NPM audits were conducted while Gibbon’s was governor he resigned the following day.

Governor Sandoval latter appointed William Chissel, a CPA with an auditing background as the replacement director of the Nevada Tax Department.
In the release of the Nevads Department of Taxation’s annual report in January 2012 which represented the fiscal year of July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011, it was presented that the audit penetration rate (percentage of Nevada taxpayers audited of the total population of registered Nevada businesses) was the lowest amount in 6 years. The Tax Department during this 6 year period in the years 2006 and 2007, made a significant investment in new tax administration and audit software along with employee training to provide increased efficiency and audit performance. Accenture Consulting Services formerly a unit of Arthur Anderson & Co. was selected to design and implement the tax administration software. Revenue Solutions Inc. of Boston, Massachusetts was selected as a subcontractor by Accenture to design and implement the tax auditing software system.
Approximately $40,000,000.00 was invested in new tax administration and audit software. The results of this investment after implementation of this system as shown in Tax Department’s annual reports (2008, 2009, 2010) have been abysmal.
During the first full year of leadership under the new Director William Chissel the Tax Department was frought with turmoil and discontent.

Mr. Chissel exited the director’s position and was replaced by a former Deputy Attorney General assigned to the Department, Christopher G. Nielsen. Mr. Nielsen assumed the Executive Director’s duties on July 1, 2012. Mr. Nielsen was previously a Deputy Director of the Tax Department and was also an Acting Director after the termination of Dino DiCianno. Mr. Nielsen was in the position of Acting Director for several months prior to the appointment of William Chissel as Executive Director.

Governor Brian Sandoval Controversy

Source Wikipedia.

The Sandoval administration was immediately immersed in controversy when Sandoval retained Nevada Department of Taxation Director Dino DiCianno from the previous Jim Gibbons administration. [24]

It was discovered during the 2011 Nevada Legislative hearings that the Nevada Department of Taxation’s director, Dino DiCianno, never had the Tax Department under Gibbon’s leadership conduct Net Proceeds of Minerals (NPM) tax audits of mining operations within Nevada. Mr. DiCianno’s claim was that the Tax Department did not have qualified auditors capable of performing NPM audits. During Gibbon’s term market prices of precious minerals were at historical and significant high levels. The market selling price of Gold was in the $1,300 to $1,500+ per ounce range during Gibbon’s term. Gibbons was also a geologist and lawyer. The Nevada Department of Taxation closed the Elko, Nevada tax office in June 2010 in response to the requested Gibbons budget cuts. [25]

During Gibbons term Nevada lead North America in Gold and Silver production. Also Nevada was ranked No. 3 in the world for Gold production. After Mr. DiCianno’s testimony to the Nevada legislature that no NPM audits were conducted while Gibbon’s was governor he resigned the following day. See Bloomber Business Week and AP story “NV tax director abruptly retires after audit flap”[26] and Las Vegas Review Journal. [27] [28]

Governor Sandoval latter appointed William Chissel, a CPA with an auditing background as the replacement director of the Nevada Tax Department. [29]

On February 14, 2012 the Las Vegas Review Journal did a series of stories entitled “Taxation Department losing tens of millions of dollars a year, ex-employees say”. The story tells the various scandals that occurred in the Nevada Department of Taxation under Director Dino DiCianno. [30] [31]

After one year into his term as Governor, Nevada received a D- and ranked 42nd among states for anti-corruption and government transparency efforts, according to a new report from State Integrity Investigation. [32]

Nevada received a D- and ranked 42nd among states for anti-corruption and government transparency efforts, according to a new report from State Integrity Investigation. Nevada rated poorly in a number of areas, including grades of F for state pension fund management, lobbying disclosure and internal auditing, grades of D for public access to information and legislative accountability and a C- for executive accountability. [33]

Nevada D- for CORRUPTION under Brian Sandoval http://www.stateintegrity.org/nevada

Nevada D- for CORRUPTION under Brian Sandoval

In response to the wholesale corruption validated by the D- grade, a large number of Nevada citizens formed a coalition called the Nevada ANTI-Corruption movement.

The ANTI-Corruption movement held a series of demonstrations at the State Capital in Carson City, NV starting in April 2012. [34] [35]

The Nevada ANTI-Corruption movement created a website www.NevadaStatePersonnelWATCH.wordpress.com and a youtube video series called CSI: Carson City to correspond to the massive 130 foot long by 4 foot tall Crime Scene banner.

The ANTI-Corruption movement received massive media coverage and the CSI: Carson City videos went “viral” on youtube.

Sandoval is rumored to be on the short list for Republican President hopeful Mitt Romney’s Vice President pick. [36]

 

Taxation protests generate positive results, expose more corrution and will continue

The Nevada Department of Taxation protests generate positive results and will continue.

Current and former Tax employees confirm a culture-of-corruption still exists. Please email us at Nevadawatchdog@rocketmail.com to expose corruption, you can remain anonymous.

Nevada State Personnel Watch learns that a disgruntled person wiped “human defecation” on the desk/chair of Nevada Department of Taxation IT Director Vince Cherpeski. We can assure everyone it was not anyone of the people protesting or related to this web-site.  Interesting news, we wonder who did it.

Employees are still filing complaints, retaliation is rampant and even FMLA backdating has occurred. IT issues still occur and audits are problematic. People are supporting us and our cause.

Views to our youtube and NevadaStatePersonnelWatch.wordpress.com sites have gone off the hook.
