Property Tax Overview
 
It takes three separate Nevada County offices, Assessor, Auditor-Controller, and Treasurer and Tax Collector to produce and account for your property tax bill and payment. For a diagram that shows the flow of the process, please click here.
 
 
Assessor
 
The Nevada  County Assessor establishes the assessed value of your property by appraising the value of that property under applicable State laws. The assessed value is then placed on a list with all other properties in Nevada County and this list is called the "Assessment Roll." The Assessor also approves and applies all exemptions, which are added to the Assessment Roll. The Assessment Roll is then presented to the Nevada County Auditor-Controller for further processing.
 
Auditor-Controller
 
The Nevada  County Auditor-Controller adds direct assessments to the Assessment Roll then applies the tax rates, which consists of general (1%) levy and debt service (voter & bonded) tax rates to the value to create an Extended Assessment Roll. The Extended Roll is then sent to the Nevada County Treasurer and Tax Collector for individual tax bill distribution and payment collection.
 
Treasurer and Tax Collector
 
The Nevada  County Treasurer and Tax Collector receives the Extended Roll, prints and mails the property tax bills to the name and address on the Extended Roll. The Treasurer and Tax Collector collects secured and unsecured taxes. Secured  taxes are taxes on real property, such as vacant land, structures on land, i.e. business/office building, home, apartments, etc. Unsecured taxes are taxes on assessments such as office furniture, equipment, airplanes and boats, as well as property taxes that are not liens against the real property. See frequently asked questions about property taxes in Nevada County here
