What is the Partial Tax Abatement or the Tax Cap?

Nevada Revised States (NRS) 361.471 through 361.4735 provides for a Partial Tax Abatement of property taxes and is commonly referred to as the "Tax Cap". The Tax Cap limits the amount your property taxes can increase from the last fiscal tax year to the current fiscal tax year. Any amount over the tax cap limit is abated. The Tax Cap does not apply to new construction, new value placed on the assessment roll or changes in actual or authorized use. The Tax Cap does not mean your taxes will increase. It means that if your taxes increase, they will not increase by more than a certain percentage.
