The Assessor's Office locates taxable property, identifies ownership, and establishes value for the tax assessment rolls. The citizens of Nevada County deserve fair and equal implementation of California property tax laws, and our goal is to ensure that taxpayers receive timely and accurate property assessments. The Assessor strives to keep property owners aware of their rights and responsibilities while providing courteous and professional service to our taxpayers.
