Tax bills for the more than 790,000 parcels in Clark County are being mailed to owners of real property over the next several days, according to the Clark County Treasurer's Office.
Taxes for the fiscal year, which began on July 1st, are due on the third Monday in August, but may be paid in four installments if the taxes exceed $100. The installment due dates for the fiscal year are:
First Installment Monday, August 17, 2020
Second Installment Monday, October 5, 2020
Third Installment Monday, January 4, 2021
Fourth Installment Monday, March 1, 2021
Any installment may be paid prior to its due date. To avoid late payment penalties, an installment must be paid within 10 days after its due date. Taxpayers can easily check the installment due dates and amounts due on the Treasurer's website at www.clarkcountynv.gov/treasurer or by calling (702) 455-4323 and selecting Option 2.
Residential property owners should verify that the tax cap percentage is correct on their tax bill or statement. If it is incorrect, they should call the Clark County Assessor's Office at (702) 455-3882.
Many taxpayers will receive a statement of tax distribution instead of a tax bill with coupons. This means that a mortgage company has requested the bill information for the property. If a taxpayer receives a tax bill and believes their mortgage company is supposed to make the tax payments, they should contact their lender immediately.
Some taxpayers may not receive either a tax bill or distribution statement. This usually happens in cases where the property has recently been purchased, a mortgage has been paid off, the mailing address was incorrect on the recorded deed, or the owner hasn't notified the County Assessor's Office of an address change. A change form is available on the Assessor's website at http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/assessor/. It is important to note that changing your mailing address at the U.S. Post Office or writing "new address" on your check will not update the Assessor's records.
If someone has not received a tax bill (or distribution statement) by the first week in August, they should call the Treasurer's Office. Property owners are responsible for paying their taxes on time, whether or not they received the tax bill. Per Nevada state law, failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse the taxpayer from the timely payment of taxes.
Due to ongoing concerns of Covid-19, the office is encouraging taxpayers to pay their taxes using the new online service, or over the phone. E-check and credit cards are accepted online. Credit cards only are accepted over the phone. There is no fee for E-check payments, but credit card payments will be charged a fee by our third-party processor.
All payment options are on the Treasurer's Office website at https://www.clarkcountynv.gov/treasurer/.
The County Treasurer bills, collects and disburses the taxes and special assessments levied by the various governmental entities, including the state, school district, County, cities, libraries and other special districts. Taxpayers can see which entities they pay by looking at the tax distribution table on their tax bill or distribution statement. More detailed information may be viewed on the Treasurer's Office website. Special assessment charges for groundwater basins -- for example, the Las Vegas Artesian Basin -- are shown on the tax bills separately from property taxes or other special assessments based on the assessed value of your property.
