The Assessor appraises (or establishes a value for) all property in the county which is
subject to taxation and sets the taxable value of each property.
The property is assessed at 35% of its current appraised or taxable value.
In addition to nearly 17,000 parcels of real property (land, homes, commercial buildings), the Assessor must value personal property of approximately 500 businesses from million dollar casinos to one person operations, over 5,000 mobile and manufactured homes, aircraft, and any other taxable personal property.

tax laws are made by the Nevada Legislature.
