Nevada's tax environment (including no personal income tax) is continually regarded as one of the most-business friendly environments in the nation.
The 2008 Kosmont-Rose Cost of Doing Business Survey rated Henderson as a “Very Low Cost City,” analyzing six types of taxes including business license levies, property tax, sales tax and utility taxes in over 400 cities nationwide.
Because of its location, easy access and business-friendly environment, Henderson is becoming a hub for business in the Southwest. It is conveniently located between five major markets (Los Angeles, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, San Diego and San Francisco).
Known for its master-planned communities and high-quality of living, Henderson leads Nevada cities in income per capita and the education levels of its residents. It was also named one of America's “Safest Cities” by Money magazine.
Henderson is located just 15 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip and 10 minutes from McCarran International Airport, one of the largest airports in the nation.
Henderson has been at the front of Nevada's growth spurt, growing from just 60,000 to over 270,000 today. By the end of the year 2025, nearly 500,000 residents are expected to call Henderson home.
Henderson's population would qualify it as the 14th largest city in the state of California – larger than such cities as Irvine, Glendale and San Bernardino.
The evolution of a leader: Henderson

Not only is Nevada's second largest city "a place to call home" - as the city's slogan states - it has also become a premier place in the Southwest to do business.

In the 1980s and the early 1990s, Henderson became a national leader when it came to the success of master-planned communities. While the population boom has continued, the past decade has established Henderson as "The Las Vegas Valley Address for Business Success." Henderson is now the place to be in Nevada if you want to live or do business.

The growth numbers of the population are staggering. In 1980, nearly 30,000 people lived in Henderson. Just 25 years later, the city's population is over 270,000.

With an educated workforce (Henderson is now home to 13 higher education institutions) and an attractive infrastructure for business, company leaders from across the nation are choosing Henderson as the place for their businesses to call home.

Whether it's moving a company's headquarters to Henderson, opening a new manufacturing facility to serve the West Coast, investing in the redevelopment efforts downtown or establishing a world-class medical training institute, Henderson's business-friendly environment is an outstanding choice to increase your profits.
