Pay Your Tax Bill

ATTENTION  

WE ARE HIGHLY ENCOURAGING TAXPAYERS TO UTILIZE OUR ONLINE OR OVER-THE PHONE PAYMENT SYSTEM OR PARKING LOT DROP BOX IN LIGHT OF THE COVID19 SITUATION.  

The 2nd installment of the 2019-2020 property tax bill was due postmarked by April 10, 2020. Reminder letters for unpaid taxes were mailed in mid-May.  If you are impacted directly by COVID-19, please visit our penalty cancellation request page for more information about the penalty waiver process and required documentation.

Penalty requests for the April 10, 2020 payment are due in the office with payment no later than June 30, 2020.  If you are completing a waiver and wish to pay online, submit the waiver prior to June 30 2020 and inform us that you wish to pay online.  We are processing waivers quickly and will need to inform you of the determination prior to making payment online.  This will alleviate having to prepay penalties for waivers that are being approved and having to wait for a refund to be processed.  This process can be lengthy.  

Requests can be completed and submitted through the online process or by downloading the form and sending it by mail or email to ttc@co.nevada.ca.us.
