Property owners in Clark County may still file a claim for a primary residential tax cap rate of 3 percent on their taxes for the 2019-2020 fiscal year, which ends June 30.
The Clark County Assessor's Office will be mailing post cards today to residential property owners who have not yet returned a claim form but may still be eligible for the 3-percent tax cap rate. Property owners may submit a claim by completing and signing the bottom portion of the postcards and returning it no later than June 30.
The general cap rate applicable to all other properties this fiscal year is 4.8 percent, compared to the
3-percent tax cap rate for primary residences. This difference equates to a potential savings of $18 per $1,000 in taxes on primary residential properties that qualify.
If the claim is approved pursuant to the eligibility requirements established in Nevada Revised Statutes, the Treasurer's Office will update its records and make any necessary adjustments to taxes paid or still owed for the 2019-2020 fiscal year. Each fiscal year ends on June 30.
Property owners may view their property tax cap rate for the 2019-2020 fiscal year on the Treasurer pages of Clark County's website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/treasurer. From the home page, click on "Property Account Inquiry" and enter your name, address or parcel number. The property tax cap amount is listed under the "Property Characteristics" heading. If the rate is determined to be correct, no further action is required.
For more information, property owners may contact the Clark County Assessor's Office at (702) 455-3882. Clark County Television produced a 30-second Public Service Announcement to help spread the word about the tax cap notices. The PSA will be shared with local media, and is posted on the County's website, YouTube page and other social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and NextDoor.
