More than 59,000 property tax bills are mailed by the County Treasurer’s Office annually. The County Assessor sets the assessed value and the County Commissioners set the tax rates for the County. Due to the heavy volume of mail and phone calls received near installment due dates, processing payments may take up to 15 business days.

Future Due Dates

The Nevada Legislature has established four quarterly tax installment due dates for each fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) as shown above. Tax bills are mailed only once each year. 

If you purchase real property during the tax year, you are responsible for any taxes not paid as of the close of escrow. Please contact the Treasurer's Office at treasurer@co.nye.nv.us to request a duplicate bill. As stated in NRS 361.480 failure to receive an individual tax bill does not excuse the taxpayer from the timely payment of taxes.
