According to Nevada County Treasurer & Tax Collector, Tina Vernon, less property tax bills are being sent to the banks and more are going to individual owners. Though it is not an official indicator of a recovering economy, it is a promising sign compared to a year ago.
With more properties being transferred this year, a large number of tax bills that were sent out in early November are being returned to the Tax Collector’s office by prior owners. Vernon wants to remind new property owners that it is the buyers responsibility to be sure title and tax records are transferred to the current owner. Penalties will be assessed starting December 10th- you can access you tax information through the Tax Collector web site.
