On April 6, 2005, a law was signed by Governor Guinn which provides a partial abatement of taxes by applying a cap on the annual increase a property taxes on the OWNER’S PRIMARY RESIDENCE. This can be a single-family house, townhouse, condominium or a manufactured home on land.

NRS 361.4723 provides abatement of taxes by applying a 3% cap on the tax bill of the owner's primary residence or qualified rental dwelling.  The law only allows for you to claim “ONE” Nevada residence as your “primary”, therefore, if you are claiming another Nevada residence within a different county as your primary, please notify that County Assessor of this change.   

A cap of no more than 8% is applied to residences that are not owner occupied, land, commercial buildings, business personal property, aircraft, etc.  New construction or property that has a change of actual or authorized use will not qualify for an abatement for the first year, but will receive the appropriate cap the following year.  

All rental properties will be required to provide additional information to the Assessor in order to determine the correct level of partial abatement. An affidavit will be provided by the Assessor at a later date for all rental properties.

 

A new owner occupancy verification card may be required due to change of ownership, mailing address, change in use, property is now a rental, etc. 

 

             Falsifying information on this form may result in a penalty pursuant to law.
