Nevada has no state income tax. The state sales tax is currently 8.10%.

Property Tax Cap

In the 2005 Legislative session the Nevada State Legislature passed a law to provide property tax relief to all citizens. Assembly Bill 489, signed into law on April 6, 2005, provides a partial abatement of taxes by applying a 3% cap on the increase in the tax bill for the owner's primary residence (single-family house, townhouse, condominium or manufactured home). Only one property may be selected in the State of Nevada as a primary residence. Some rental dwellings that meet the low-income rent limits may also qualify for a 3% cap on the tax bill.

An 8% cap on the increase in the tax bill will be applied to residences that are not owner occupied. The 8% cap will also apply to land, commercial buildings, business personal property, aircraft, etc. New construction or property that has a change of use in the current fiscal year (zoning change or manufactured home conversion) will not qualify for any cap for in the ensuing year, but will receive the 3% or 8% cap starting the following year.
