The Douglas County Assessor’s Office has mailed out assessment notices.

They would like recipients to review their assessment notice carefully and contact the office if there are any issues.

“Verify the correct property tax cap is being applied to your property,” officials said. “There is a 3 percent cap on owner-occupied primary residences and qualifying rentals, and an 8 percent cap on everything else.”

 The Assessor’s Office is asking that veterans, or any other exemption holder, make sure their exemption is on their assessment notice. 

“If you have a property tax exemption and it does not appear on your notice, contact the Assessor’s Office and they will ensure your exemption is properly applied,” officials said. “Lastly, if your assessment notice was forwarded to you by the mail carrier, please call the Assessor’s Office to make sure they have your correct mailing address.”

Nevada assesses property taxes based on property value. Residents may appeal their property value to the county Board of Equalization.

Appeals are due Jan. 15. Forms are available by visiting the Assessor’s Office in the Douglas County Courthouse, 1616 Eighth St.

Hearings on appeals are conducted in February.
