FILE NUMBER 14, AR 3

Assembly Resolution No. 3–Washoe County Delegation

FILE NUMBER 14

ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION–Requesting the Nevada tax commission and the state board of equalization to adjust unrealistic assessments resulting from overvaluation and excessive valuation by county assessors and to promulgate rules relative to assessments of property devoted to agricultural, residential or recreational purposes.

 

      Whereas, Pursuant to the provisions of NRS 360.250, the Nevada tax commission has the power to direct county assessors concerning the preparation of assessment rolls and the collection of taxes and to establish and prescribe general and uniform rules and regulations, not in conflict with law, governing the assessment of property by county assessors; and

      Whereas, Pursuant to the provisions of NRS 360.280 it is the mandatory duty of county assessors to adopt and put in practice the rules and regulations established and prescribed by the Nevada tax commission governing the assessment of property; and

      Whereas, The state board of equalization, composed of the members of the Nevada tax commission, has the duty of reviewing the tax rolls of the various counties as corrected by the county boards of equalization and to raise or lower, equalize and establish the full cash value of the property, for the purpose of the valuations therein established by the county assessors and county boards of equalization; and

      Whereas, It appears that some county assessors may have acted unrealistically in determining the full cash value of taxable property within their counties, as evidenced by the numerous complaints charging overvaluation or excessive valuation filed with and heard by county boards of equalization; and

      Whereas, The business of equalization by the county boards of equalization has been concluded in January as required by law, leaving many taxpayers without relief and forcing undetermined numbers to exercise their rights of appeal to the state board of equalization; and

      Whereas, Unless the state board of equalization exercises its powers granted by law with stability, practicality and realism, many of the aggrieved taxpayers will suffer economic extermination because of the unchecked enthusiasm of some county assessors; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly of the State of Nevada, That the state board of equalization and the Nevada tax commission are hereby requested, in the performance of the duties imposed upon them by law, to:

      1.  Review the tax rolls of the various counties as corrected by the county boards of equalization and to adjust the full cash value of property, whether residential or agricultural, when the facts prove that the county assessors and the county boards of equalization have been unrealistic in the assessments of property; and

      2.  Pursuant to the power granted them, promulgate immediately rules and regulations, which it will be the mandatory duty of county assessors to adopt and put in practice, for assessing property which is zoned and used exclusively for agricultural, residential or recreational purposes, and as to which there is no reasonable probability of the removal or modification of the zoning restriction within the near future, requiring that county assessors shall consider no factors other than those relative to such use; and be it further
