Las Vegas Property Tax Exemption

Image: Arvind Balaraman /
In Las Vegas (Henderson and North Las Vegas too)  there are four potential tax exemptions available to residents:

Looking for a home in Las Vegas? Use our Las Vegas Home Finder to receive property information via email.
  1. Surviving Spouse - property of surviving spouses are eligible for tax exemptions.  Must sign and affidavit and provide a death certificate.  Also, you must be a resident of Nevada (show a Nevada I.D.)
  2. Veterans - available to individuals who served in the armed forces during particular dates or carrying out the authorization granted to the President of the United States in Public Law 102-1 or served on active duty in connection with a campaign or expedition for service in which a medal has been authorized by the government of the United States
  3. Disabled Veterans - must have a permanent service-connected disability of at least 60%.  This exemption may pass along to a surviving spouse.
  4. Blind - for Nevada residents whose visual acuity meets the criteria for being legally blind.  
Exemption doesn't mean you are not required to pay property taxes.  

The amount of the exemption varies and you need to contact the Clark County Assessors office to determine the amount of the exemption and also what is needed to apply for an exemption.  You will have to prove that you are a Nevada resident and there will be an affidavit requirement for each exemption.

Hope this helps someone.
