If you’re looking to take a hike, there’s Red Rock Canyon and Mount Charleston to the West. Are you looking for some culture? Henderson is home to the Henderson Pavilion, host to a number of concerts and plays, and the Clark County Museum, which tells the story about the early days of the Las Vegas Valley. If you travel a few minutes to the North, you can check out the Neon Museum, The Mob Museum, or DISCOVERY Children’s Museum. You can also catch the Las Vegas Philharmonic, the Nevada Ballet Theater, or one of the many touring Broadway shows at The Smith Center. What if you’re missing the ocean?  Well, the beaches of California or just a few hours to the south!

No.3 – Taxes

Nevada’s tax climate is among the most attractive in the United States. Residents of Nevada pay no personal income tax. Are you thinking about moving your business to Nevada? Well, Nevada does not impose any Franchise or Corporate tax. As for property taxes, The City of Henderson’ tax rate is $0.71 for every $100 of assessed value.  This makes Henderson property taxes one of the lowest in the State of Nevada!

Year after year, Henderson is named as one of the nation’s safest cities. Henderson has maintained a violent crime rate less than half the national average. In fact, the mission of the Henderson Police Department is to make Henderson the safest city in the country by providing premier police services through innovation and partnerships with our community. Safety isn’t all about policing though. The Henderson Fire Department is nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS) and Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) and they are a full-service fire and rescue department. They are the only triple-accredited fire department in the nation.
