Real Property Tax Information

Billing
The Treasurer's office mails out real property tax bills ONLY ONE TIME each fiscal year. If you do not receive your tax bill by August 1st each year, please use the automated telephone system to request a copy. Tax bills requested through the automated system are sent to the mailing address on record. Please verify your mailing address is correct prior to requesting a bill. If real property is purchased during the fiscal year or if a mortgage company is no longer responsible for making tax payments, call our office to request a bill at 702-455-4323 (option 3).

Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the responsibility for timely payment, nor constitute cause for cancellation of penalty and/or cost charges if the tax bill becomes delinquent. (See Nevada Revised Statute 361.480.)

Mortgage Payments
If your mortgage company holds an escrow to pay your taxes and you received a bill, write your loan number on the bill and send it to your mortgage company.  It is your responsibility to ensure that your mortgage company pays the taxes on your property timely.

Due Dates
The taxes are due the third Monday in August. However, taxes may be paid in installments if the taxes exceed $100.00.

THESE PAYMENTS ARE NOT QUARTERLY

The due dates for the installments are:

  • 3rd Monday in August
  • 1st Monday in October
  • 1st Monday in January
  • 1st Monday in March

Delinquencies
Properties with taxes not paid in full at the end of April of each year, will be advertised as delinquent in the local newspaper and published on the Treasurer website.

Redemption Period
If the amount owed is not paid by 5 p.m. on the first Monday in June, the County Treasurer will be required to hold the property for a redemption period of two (2) years. The property may be redeemed by payment of taxes and accruing taxes, penalties and cost, together with interest on the taxes at the rate of 10 percent per annum from the original date due until paid.

Property owners have two years from the date of the certificate to redeem the property by paying the property taxes and all associated costs in full.

However; pursuant to NRS 361.567, the county tax receiver may elect to expedite the sale process after a one year redemption period on properties that are determined to be abandoned.

Deeding
If all past due amounts are not paid by the end of the two-year redemption period, the property will be deeded to the County Treasurer. The property will be held in trust and may be sold at public auction, if the past due amounts are not paid.
