The Assessor says there are 63,000 parcels in Nevada  County, and 26% of those are in Proposition 8 status, which means the value of the property has dropped low enough to warrant an adjustment in property value for tax assessment.   About 14% of property taxes collected in the county remain here. The rest goes to cities or special assessments. About 56% of property taxes collected go to schools.
