Las Vegas area, Clark County Nevada property tax information.
Including Las Vegas, Henderson,
North Las Vegas and most of unincorporated Clark County
I often receive inquiries with respect to Las Vegas property tax
information. Below is information that should address this issue in a general
way. There are 92 separate tax districts in Clark County, all with their own
rates. I have used as a rule of thumb, that yearly property taxes are around 1%
of the value of a property. The actual rates for most of Clark County for the
tax year 2008-2009 run from .87% to 1.117%. Below is information on how the
process works and how taxes are determined.
In Clark County, the Assessor determines the value of all property. The
Treasurer then determines the property taxes owed.
WHAT THE ASSESSOR DOES:
The Assessor values all property subject to taxation. The Assessor is required
by Nevada law to discover, list and value all property within the county. The
property is assessed at 35% of its current appraised value.
WHAT THE TREASURER DOES:
The County Treasurerís office bills and collects taxes on all real property in
Clark County. The office distributes the tax dollars to the various taxing
entities including the state, county, school district, cities, libraries and
other special districts.
CLARK COUNTY TAX RATES
A tax district is an area defined within a county for
taxing purposes. There are currently 92 separate tax districts in Clark County.
The tax rate for each district is based on the amount of monies budgeted for
government-provided services, such as schools, police, fire, parks, libraries,
and capital projects, such as flood control and transportation.
The property tax rates for most all of Clark County range from 2.4863 to 3.3552
for the tax year 2008-2009. A home that is found to be valued at $200,000 and
given that the property is assessed at 35% of current value, this home would
show an assessed value of $70,000. You are then taxed at the above rates for
every $100 of assessed value. Given the above tax rates, this $200,000 home
would have property taxes for the current year ranging from $1,740.41 to
CONTACTING THE ASSESSOR
If you have general questions or
questions regarding your property or a property you are considering buying, call
1-702-455-3882. A receptionist usually answers the phone and if necessary, will
transfer you to an assessor to help.
WHAT IF YOU DISAGREE WITH THE VALUE THE
ASSESSOR PLACES ON YOUR PROPERTY?
If, in your opinion, the taxable value of your property exceeds the value
indicated in the real estate market, you can call or come in to the
Assessorís Office and discuss your appraisal with an appraiser in the Assessorís
If, after discussing the matter with the Assessorís staff, a difference of
opinion still exists, you may appeal your assessment to the County Board of
Equalization. You may obtain the forms from the Assessorís Office during the
month of December and until the deadline for filing, which is January 15 unless
it falls on a holiday or weekend, which then would make the deadline the next
business day. Please call (702) 455-3891 to have an appeal form mailed to you.
The forms are relatively easy so you may represent yourself rather than incur
If the County Board, after hearing your petition, still agrees with the
Assessorís appraisal, you may appeal the County Boardís decision to the State
Board of Equalization. If the State Board also agrees with the Assessorís Office
and you still disagree, you may take your appeal to District Court.
