Clark County will drop the bills in the mail the third week of July. And property owners should have them in hand by the first week in August.
Assistant Clark County Treasurer Becky Coates explained the strict timetable used to make the property tax sausage.
First, the assessor provides the taxable value of the various properties in Clark County to the treasurer’s office. Next, the county Finance Department provides the treasurer with the applicable tax rates. And finally, the Nevada State Tax Commission meets — by statute it’s on June 25 — to approve the rates. (Mr. Sun hears tickets are still available for Thursday’s session.)
Although the bills aren’t mailed until late July, the tax roll is completed by July 10. Those who want an early peek at the damage can look it up on the treasurer’s Web site.
Payments are due the third Monday of August — which falls on the 17th this year.
