Each Assessor’s office in Nevada estimates the property’s "taxable" value by considering its location, zoning, actual use, etc. Land values are estimated from market sales of vacant property, or other recognized appraisal methods when vacant sales are limited or non-existent. The taxable value of buildings, structures, etc, is the estimated replacement cost new, using approved costing in accordance with the Nevada Administrative Code, less depreciation. The land value is then added to the properties improvement value, if any, to arrive at the property’s overall taxable value. The taxable value arrived at may not exceed the properties "Full Cash" or "Market Value". If a structure has been removed from the property and the Assessor’s office is notified, the Assessor will delete the value from the assessment. Also, if on or after the lien date there was partial or total destruction of an improvement and the property was rendered unusable for not less than 90 consecutive days, the owner of the property may be entitled to an adjustment or credit NRS 361.227.
If, in your opinion, the taxable value of your property exceeds the value indicated in the real estate market, please call or come in to the Assessor’s Office and discuss your appraisal with an appraiser in the Assessor’s Office. The Assessor welcomes the opportunity to review any evidence you can provide that will show the valuation is unrealistic. If, after discussing the matter with the Assessor’s staff, a difference of opinion still exists, you may appeal your assessment to the County Board of Equalization. You may obtain the forms from the Assessor’s Office during the month of December and until the deadline for filing, which is January 15 unless it falls on a holiday or weekend, which then would make the deadline the next business day. Please call (775)293-6542 to have an appeal form mailed to you. The forms are relatively easy so you may represent yourself rather than incur legal expenses. If the County Board, after hearing your petition, still agrees with the Assessor’s appraisal, you may appeal the County Board’s decision to the State Board of Equalization. If the State Board also agrees with the Assessor’s Office and you still disagree, you may take your appeal to District Court.NRS 361.355
