Notice: "Failure to receive a Property Tax Statement does not exempt the taxpayer from timely payment of the taxes due.
If you have not received a Tax Statement by the first part of August, please contact us at (775) 273-2208 and information will be mailed to you.
The amount of taxes owing on real property each year is based on the assessed valuation as established by the County Assessor and the combined tax rate as established by the taxing entities. The Clerk-Treasurer’s Office collects the taxes as established through this process.
Property Tax Statements are mailed approximately July 15th of each year to the assessed owner, as their name and mailing address appear on the assessment roll on July 1st.The assessment roll is created and maintained by the County Assessor.
If you bought property in the last part of the fiscal year, the former owner may receive the statement, as the County Assessor’s Office may not have received the recorded deed in time to indicate any changes. If you purchased property in July, August or later in the year and have not been provided a tax statement, you may have taxes owing on your parcel.You can contact the Clerk-Treasurer’s Office regarding any taxes owing. Responsibility for the payment of the taxes on the sale of property rests between the buyer and seller.
Taxes levied on Real and Personal Property are a perpetual lien on the property without respect to ownership and have priority over all liens until they are paid in full.
Pershing County must be notified of your change in mailing address. If you own multiple parcels, a listing of all parcels affected should be submitted with your notification. There is a space for this on each of your payment stubs. You can also change your address by completing and submmiting a Change Of Address form.
