While Nevada may appear to the outsider as the last of the Wild West -- a place where anything goes, a local business-owner will tell you otherwise. The state's low tax-rate and easy incorporation laws may make it attractive to entrepreneurs, but that's not because of any shortage of licensing. Nevada's state, county and city governments regulate a multitude of businesses and collect just as many fees. The benefits of the Wild West are available to those who apply.
In Nevada, candy shops, Confectioners and Chocolatiers require environmental health licenses usually from counties and cities.
