Whenever a credit card is used for payment, there is typically a "merchant fee" deducted from the payment amount that gets passed from the credit card company back to the merchant. This means that the merchant does not collect the full price of the items sold when customers use credit cards for their purchases. The Treasurer's Office is mandated by (NRS 361.470, NRS 361.475) to collect the full amount of property tax billed on a parcel. In order to comply with this regulation and allow property taxes to be paid by credit card, the cost of the transaction is added as a service fee, to be paid by the taxpayer, rather than being taken as a merchant fee from the amount paid. The Treasurer's office does not receive any portion of the service fee.

  • Fees are prominently displayed and acknowledged before the taxpayer finalizes the transaction. Transactions can be cancelled if the taxpayer does not agree to pay the service fees.
  • How can I dispute the charge or the fee after the fact? Disputes are filed the same way any other credit card dispute is handled, between the customer and their credit card issuer.

Yes we are able to process credit card payments with a foreign mailing address.

  • Credit card service fees are approximately 2.45% of the amount of taxes being paid.
  • For example: A tax bill of $500.00 would have a service fee of $12.25.

Both debit and credit cards have the same service fee, whether online or at our front counter.

How does the e-check option work? What are the fees?

  • When the e-check option is chosen, the user will be prompted to enter their bank routing and account information. There is no charge for this payment option.
  • An eCheck is limited to $500,000 per transaction. Payments greater than $500,000 must be paid with multiple eChecks.
  • Important to note when paying by e-check, should your e-check not be honored by your financial institution it will be processed in the same manner as any other returned item. The payment will be cancelled and a $25.00 returned item fee will be added.
