Laureen E. Basso-Cerini, Assessor and Certified Appraiser
The Assessor's Office strives to ensure that all Pershing County Taxpayers receive an assessment of their property that is equitable. Each assessment is conducted in accordance with Nevada Revised Statutes and regulations of the Nevada Tax Commission. We also ensure that each taxpayer receives prompt, courteous and professional service.
The primary function of the Assessor's Office is to locate and appraise all taxable property within the boundaries of Pershing County. We then provide assessed values for each property. These assessed values are not allowed to exceed market value. The values of the entire tax roll (real and personal) are then reported to the Department of Taxation and local entities. It is through property tax that Pershing County is provided the needed funding that provides services to the people within their jurisdiction.
Property taxes help fund the School District, the General County, the City of Lovelock, the Hospital, Law Enforcement, the Public Library, the Fire Department and other functions.
