Nevada Program Overview

Property Tax-Aide features the Low Tax Cap, the only widely available property tax relief program for homeowners in Nevada. There is no program specifically for older residents in the state.

Low Tax Cap (Tax Limitation by Abatement)

Property owners are eligible for a partial abatement of property taxes assessed upon real and personal property. For a owner-occupied, single-family residence, which is considered the primary residence of the owner, the abatement is any amount of this year’s tax liability that exceeds the prior year’s tax liability by 3%. Some rental dwellings that meet the low-income rent limits may also qualify for a 3% cap on the tax bill. Increases on assessed value of non-owner-occupied residential properties as well other property, are capped up to 8%.

Nevada also offers property tax exemptions to persons meeting certain requirements such as veterans, disabled veterans, blind persons and surviving spouses. These exemptions can be applied to real property, personal property, or used to exempt all or part of vehicle privilege tax.

Eligibility

  • A recorded owner resides at the property, whether or not the owner lives there full-time AND
  • The owner does not claim another property in Nevada as their primary residence AND
  • The owner does not rent or lease the property out on a nightly, weekly, monthly or other short- or long-term basis (roommates that occupy the home simultaneously with the owner are an exception).

Application Deadline

  • June 15
  • Each year local county assessors will directly mail a card, form, or affidavit to the owners of residential property. The notice must be returned by June each year.
  • Some counties allow residents to apply online.

Required Documentation

  • Completed Property Tax Claim Form
