|Clark County property tax bills sent April 11|
Clark County property tax statements were placed in the mail Wednesday, April 11, 2012 for the 2011 pay 2012 property taxes. The due dates are May 10th, 2012 and November 13th, 2012. The first installment must be paid by May 10, 2012, although you may choose to pay both installments at the May 10, 2012 due date. You will not receive a fall billing or tax due reminder for the November 13, 2012 payment due.
If your tax bill is less than $25.00, the entire amount is due on May 10, 2012. If your mortgage bank escrows your tax payment, please contact them to verify that they have paid the tax bill. Escrow accounts still receive a tax statement for record purposes, even though a third party actually makes the payment.
