Reminder letters for delinquent taxes were mailed May 17th. Payments for delinquent 15-16 taxes must be postmarked by June 30, 2016 to avoid interest charges of 1.5% per month on all overdue balances. You can pay your taxes online, check your tax payment status and get copies of secured tax bills by using the MyTaxBill and Pay Your Tax Bill links listed under services. For your added convenience, a new drive-up tax payment drop box has been installed in the parking lot.
WELCOME to the site of the Nevada County Treasurer & Tax Collector.

In Nevada County, the functions of County Treasurer and County Tax Collector are combined into the Office of the Treasurer & Tax Collector, a public official elected by the citizens of the County.
The Nevada County Treasurer is a State-mandated function that is governed by the Government Code. The Treasurer acts as a bank and investment firm receiving, investing and safeguarding all money belonging to the schools, special districts and County Departments. These entities draw upon these funds to pay for their budgeted expenses. The Treasury staff is responsible for approximately $400M in funds that flow through the Treasury each year and safeguards an investment portfolio that tops $200M.
