Tax Bills & Collection

Bills

Tax bills are only mailed once a year!

If you purchase real property during the tax year, you are responsible for any taxes not paid as of the close of escrow.

When a taxpayer acquires a new home, pays off a mortgage or buys real property during the tax year, they must contact the Treasurer's Office at 775-623-6444 to request a duplicate bill, or we can be contacted via email.

Tax Calculations

To compute the property taxes for a particular parcel of property, simply multiply the assessed valuation by the tax rate as shown in the following example.

Taxable value multiplied by 35% equals assessed value multiplied by rate for tax district in which the property is located equals property taxes due. (This example does not include any exemptions or abatements)

  • Taxable Value: $100,000 multiplied by 35%
  • Assessed Value: $35,000 multiplied by 0.031716*
  • Property Tax Due: $1,110.06

* $3.1716 per $100 assessed valuation

Taxes assessed are due on the third Monday of August. Taxes on parcels that exceed $100 may be made in four approximately equal installments.
