Property taxes aren’t the most exciting topic, but it’s an important topic nonetheless.

In the spring of 2018, a postcard was sent to Las Vegas, Henderson, and Clark County homeowners to identify whether that home was the owners’ primary residence or the home they lived in most of the time. If you filled out the postcard and sent it back, you’re set with a 3% tax cap. 


If you didn’t, there’s a possibility that your taxes have gone up to 4.8%. Go to the Clark County Assessor’s website and check to see what your taxes are. I checked myself and found that I’m paying the 4.8% rate, so I needed to register my home as my primary residence to have my taxes capped. Making the change equals roughly $18 per each $1,000 in taxes paid, so you could save a good amount if you do.
