Reno, Nev. Oct. 25, 2017. The Washoe County Assessor’s Office will be mailing Assessment Notices to property owners over the course of the next few weeks. Property owners can expect to receive their notice no later than the week of Dec. 18.
What does this mean? Assessment Notices serve to inform the property owner of the taxable and assessed values of their land, buildings and secured personal property for the next fiscal year.
What do I need to do when I receive my Assessment Notice? After reviewing your Assessment Notice, if the owner agrees with the value, no further action is needed until it is time to pay property taxes. Tax bills will be issued by the Washoe County Treasurer in July 2018.
What if I disagree with the assessed value of my property? If a property owner has questions or concerns regarding the assessed value, please contact the Washoe County Assessor’s Office, 775-328-2233 or the Washoe 311 customer service center by dialing 311. The Appraisal Division will gladly assist taxpayers in reviewing records, providing physical inspections, and making any corrections deemed necessary.
“Our goal is to ensure every property owner knows the Washoe County Assessor’s Office is accessible to them,” says Washoe County Assessor, Michael E. Clark. “We are proud of our open door policy and welcome questions and any information that might assist us in making accurate and equitable assessments.”
What if I can’t resolve my concern with the Assessor’s Office? If a property owner does not feel their concerns have been adequately addressed with the Washoe County Assessor’s Office, they may file an appeal with the County Board of Equalization for a review of the property’s taxable value. Appeal forms may be obtained by contacting the Washoe County Assessor’s Office or the Nevada Department of Taxation. The appeal deadline is January 16, 2018.
