LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Clark County assessor's office says more
than 200,000 property owners could pay lower taxes because of
falling property values.
County Assessor Mark Schofield told the Las Vegas Review-Journal
for a copyrighted story on Sunday that the next fiscal year will be
extraordinary in how much the market has declined.
Schofield says the county will assess fewer taxes on nearly
one-third of the 724,000 parcels in Clark County.
Don Burnette, the county's chief administrative officer, says
the property taxes will likely not go up, and the county could lose
$32 million to $47 million in property tax revenue to the state
during a year when sales tax revenues are declining.
Burnette says that's not a good sign.
