Property values in Nevada continued to decline in 2010. Most Nevada counties have mailed out their 2011-12 tax year notices of value in early December 2010. These notices in many cases, however, will not fully reflect the decline in market value due to the methodology used by county assessors to value property.

The Nevada property tax appeals season is highly compressed and taxpayers unaware of the deadlines can easily miss an opportunity to challenge their property’s valuation. A taxpayer dissatisfied with the county assessor’s notice of valuation must file an appeal with the county board of equalization by January 15, 2011.

Failure to file a timely appeal bars any further challenge to the property’s valuation. State law requires that all county board of equalization hearings be completed by the last day of February. Taxpayers aggrieved by the county board of equalization’s decision may file an appeal to the State Board of Equalization no later than March 10, 2011.

To appeal your Property Taxes for the 2010 fiscal year you need to go in person to the Clark County Assessors office between Dec. 15, 2009 and Jan 15, 2010. The property tax appeals are free.

Here is the address where the appeals can be made:
