NOTICE REGARDING RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES IN THE INCLINE VILLAGE/CRYSTAL BAY AREA

Be advised that on October 21, 2019 a decision in favor of the taxpayers was granted in the matter entitled “Village League to Save Incline Assets, Inc. et al. v. State of Nevada on relation of the State Board of Equalization et al.,” Case No CV03-06922 in the Second Judicial District Court, Washoe County, Nevada. By order of the District Court, the Washoe County Assessor’s Office has been directed to replace taxable land values for certain parcels in Incline Village and Crystal Bay billed for tax years 2003/04, & 2004/05, with the 2002/03 taxable land values and apply a factor of .08% to the 2002/03 values for the 2005/06 year.

 As a result, and pursuant to an agreement conditionally approved by the District Court on October 13, 2020, a list has been established of residential parcels in Incline Village/Crystal Bay which are affected. If you were an owner of record for a listed property during tax years 2003/04, 2004/05 or 2005/06, you may be eligible for refund of a resulting property tax overpayment and applicable interest. You must submit a claim in order to receive any refund. Instructions on how to search for your parcel, along with corrected taxable values, and frequently asked questions, can be viewed here before you submit your claim.
