Tax Refunds for Nevada Property Owners

Court says taxes collected in Washoe County were illegal


Yet another decision by the Nevada Supreme Court has all-but assured Washoe County will pay back the $43 million it owes Lake Tahoe property owners, the leader of the community's tax revolt said this week.

Last Thursday, the high court handed down a unanimous order striking down a 2010 appeal from Washoe County to the Nevada Board of Equalization's ruling that 8,700 property owners were due refunds for taxes paid for the 2006-07 fiscal year.
