Property Owners Appeal Tax Assesments

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Clark County officials say almost 5,200 Las Vegas-area property owners are appealing their property value assessments, down more than 50 percent from last year’s record of more than 10,600.

County commissioners are due to convene as the Board of Equalization to begin hearing appeals in a day-long meeting Jan. 31 at the Clark County Government Center.

Officials say the board plans at least 10 more meetings through February. They’ll be carried live on Clark County Television.

Property taxes are based on assessed values of about 728,500 properties in the county.

Property owners who postmarked challenges by Jan. 17 can get hearings.

Officials say many challenges are resolved after property owners provide information to the assessor’s office.

Board decisions can be appealed to the State Board of Equalization and state court.
