Dino DiCianno, the tax honcho, told Nevadaâs Senateâs Revenue Committee and confessed his department had no auditors qualified to review the mining industryâs tax returns. So, now heâs out of a job. He told Governor Sandoval he intended to retire, immediately. Sebelius wrote:
If only DiCanno had informed the governor that he had no mining tax auditors, and had not for two years, maybe heâd have been able to stay on.
Governor Sandoval issued this statement:
âI appreciate Dinoâs many years of service to the state of Nevada and I wish him well in his retirement,â Sandoval said in his statement. âHe has been a loyal and dedicated public servant for three decades.â
â[A] deputy tax official and a lobbyist for the mining industry telling lawmakers that they are totally sure the industry is honest and paying its fair share, but admitting there was no way to ensure that and finally adding the industry âoperates under a self-reporting tax system,â Sebelius noted.

Tell those kids losing their schools and ability to attend college just how fair and honest the mining industry is in paying its fair share of taxes.
