My mortgage company pays my taxes. Why do I get a bill?

If I pay by mail, how can I get a receipt?
Your cancelled check is your receipt. If you need a paid receipt, please check off the box in your tax bill and mail in your entire tax bill with your payment.

I need to change or add a name on my tax bill. What do I need to do?
The name on a real estate bill is the name of the deed holder. The Treasurer's Office cannot change the name on a property tax bill. A change of a name requires transfer of property through filing of legal documents through the Elko County Recorder's Office. Please contact that office at 775-738-6526 for information about the fees required and other requirements. For changes on the name of person property or business, you will need to contact the Assessor's Office at 775-738-5217.
Why didn't I receive my tax bill?
Have you moved recently? Tax bills are sent to the last address of record. Please contact our office for a duplicate bill.
Where do my tax dollars go?
See the breakdown of how tax dollars are distributed and to who they go to on our tax info page under taxing entities.
What is the tax rate breakdown on my property?
Tax rates are approved after the final budgets of counties are complete and the Department of Taxation sends out their projections for revenues. From there Elko County holds a public hearing during one of their Commission meetings to approve the tax rate and show the breakdown of where those taxes go with a resolution. You can find those resolutions on the Commissioners page under Boards.
