Assessor

Responsibilities

It is the primary function of the Assessor's Office to locate and appraise all taxable (real and personal) property within the boundaries of Churchill County and provide assessed values for each. These assessed values are tabulated by taxing district (city, county, or nonwater conservancy) and reported, not only to the Department of Taxation, but local entities as well. Ultimately, through the levy of property tax, it is the assessed values that will provide Churchill County programs with needed funding.

Property taxes help fund the: 

  • City of Fallon
  • Fire Department equipment
  • General county
  • Hospital
  • Law enforcement
  • Mosquito abatement
  • Public library
  • School district
