(Las Vegas, NV) — Clark County begins mailing tax bills to property owners this week.
Payment is due by the third Monday in August, but may be paid in four installments if the taxes exceed $100. The installment due dates for fiscal year 2014-2015 are:
First Installment — August 18, 2014
Second Installment — October 6, 2014
Third Installment — January 5, 2015
Fourth Installment — March 2, 2015
Any installment may be paid prior to its due date. In order to avoid a penalty, an installment must be paid no later than 10 days after its due date.
Many taxpayers will receive a Statement of Tax Distribution instead of a tax bill with payment coupons. This means that a mortgage company has requested the tax bill information for the property. If unsure whether their mortgage company is supposed to make the property tax payments, taxpayers are encouraged to call their lender to get a clear understanding of who is responsible.
The County Treasurer’s Office reports the taxes levied on all secured real property in the County for fiscal year 2014-2015 total just less than $1.5 billion, up approximately 3.2% compared to last fiscal year.
The property taxes collected by the County Treasurer are disbursed monthly to the various governmental entities that levy taxes, including the state, school district, County, cities, libraries and other special districts. Taxpayers can see which entities they pay taxes to and how much each entity receives by looking at the tax distribution table on their tax bill or statement.
During the fiscal year, a taxpayer may check the status of their taxes at any time by going to the Clark County Treasurer’s website, or by calling the 24-hour automated information system at (702) 455-4323.
