Clark County residents’ first real estate tax bills were mailed over the weekend and should arrive in mailboxes early this week. Residents will either receive a tax receipt showing a tax return sent to their mortgage company if they do not pay property taxes through the mortgage company. Each of these documents shows the property tax percentage for their address/address.
The property tax cap percentage is the maximum percentage a property owner’s property taxes can increase each year. This percentage is calculated annually by the Nevada Department of Taxation. For this fiscal year (2022-2023), the property tax rate for first homes is 3 percent, while other properties (investment, business, etc.) are 8 percent.
Residents can see what their property tax percentage is on their bill or statement, and a homeowner can correct this information at any time before June 30 through the Clark County Assessor’s office.
There are many reasons a homeowner may want to file a form to correct their property taxes, including: buying or selling a home; Change of primary residence; Renovating your home; Or transferring your home ownership into a trust, for example.
Prior to June 30 of this year, a significant number of residents submitted forms to the Clark County Assessor to adjust the property tax cap on residential properties, and as a result the tax bills mailed out did not reflect these changes. Residents are encouraged to read the notice attached to their mailing to understand next steps. The advertisement reads:
“If you recently filled out a form to adjust your tax cap percentage, please be aware that the Clark County Assessor has received a large amount of corrections which may take some time to process. If you receive a tax bill with an incorrect property tax cap percentage and file a correction form, the Treasurer’s Office will send you an amended bill after the updated tax cap information is processed. If you do not receive an updated bill showing your correct tax payment information in October, please contact the Assessor’s Office at (702) 455-3882 or by email at AOCustomerServiceRequests@ClarkCountyNV.gov.
If you paid a higher percentage of property taxes for the previous fiscal year (2021-2022) and filed an adjustment form by June 30, 2022, any refund you are owed can be applied to or refunded to taxes currently owed. If this has not occurred by October, please contact the Clark County Treasurer’s Office at (702) 455-4323 or by email at TRcustomerService@ClarkcCountyNV.gov.”
Homeowners are encouraged to contact the Clark County Assessor in October if they have not received an updated tax bill showing their property tax cap. Additionally, if a property owner has not received their first property tax bill or statement by August 1, they should contact the Clark County Treasurer at (702) 455-4323 or TRcustomerService@ClarkCountyNV.gov.
The linked PSA was created to help Clark County residents understand their property tax bill or statement and how to make changes if needed.
