SECURED ASSESSMENT ROLL as of December 1, 2012.
Note: Changes made after this date are reflected
in the current Assessor's Property Record.
The 2013/2014 assessment list published in the newspapers
is in accordance with Nevada Revised Statute (NRS) 361.300
which mandates that this listing be published in a newspaper
of general circulation in the County on or before January
1 of each year.
NRS 361.225 mandates that the assessed value
of a property be based on a ratio of 35% of the taxable value
which is determined through the use of guidelines established
by the State Department of Taxation.
Statutes mandate each year that the County Assessor
ascertain and establish the assessed value for all real and
personal property in the county which is subject to taxation.
A written notice stating the property's assessed valuation
will be mailed to the owner each year.
Property owners who believe that the market
value of their property is less than the taxable value listed
or believe that they were assessed differently than comparable
property may contact the Assessor's Office Appraisal Division
at 455-4997 for an explanation of the values. If not satisfied
after speaking with the Assessor's Office, a property owner
may file a petition with the County Board of Equalization
for a review of the values. The petition must be filed on
or before January 15, 2013. The petition forms are available
in the County Assessor's Office, located at 500 S. Grand Central
Parkway, second floor. The petitions will be scheduled for
presentation to the County Board of Equalization during its
meetings, which will be held in January and February, 2013. If further
appeal is desired, a petition may be filed with the State
Board of Equalization no later than March 10, 2013.
NRS 361.4723 provides a partial abatement of taxes by applying a 3%
cap on tax bill of the owner's primary residence or a qualified
rental dwelling. Nevada law does not provide a cap on assessed
values. Taxpayers that have already qualified for the 3% tax cap
will receive or retain their tax abatement for the 2013/2014 tax
year. A cap of no more than 8% will be applied to the tax bill
of residences that are not owner occupied, land, commercial buildings,
business personal property, aircraft, etc. New construction or property
that has a change of actual or authorized use (zoning change or
manufactured home conversion) will not qualify for any cap for
this fiscal year, but will receive the appropriate cap starting
July 1, 2014.
The Nevada Legislature provides for property tax exemptions to
assist individuals meeting certain requirements. Some of these
include veterans, disabled veterans, surviving spouses, and
blind persons. For more information on filing and eligibility requirements
