The Check Is in the Mail

By  | 

Nevada motorists and some senior citizens should begin receiving their slice of the state's $272 million dollar tax surplus.

Gov. Kenny Guinn says that about 1.9 million car registration rebate checks - ranging from $75 to $275 have been turned over to the postal service and are ready for delivery on Saturday.

Under a deal worked out in the Legislature last spring, Nevadans are entitled to a rebate based on the amount they paid in vehicle registration fees in 2004. Senior citizens who don't own cars but have state identification cards will get checks for $75.

Because of legal questions, $75 dollar checks for senior citizens who don't have cars but do have driver's licenses might be delayed until December.
