Appraiser Certification

The Storey County Assessor is an elected position charged with maintaining official records and appraising all real and personal property within the county. As outlined by Nevada Revised Statutes, a county assessor must either be a state certified tax appraiser or must employ state certified tax appraisers.

Once an appraiser is certified, he or she must complete a minimum of 36 hours of appraisal training, and complete courses approved by the Appraiser Certification Board each year in order to accumulate a total of 180 hours within a 5 year period. Once the 180 hours are completed, the certified appraiser must then complete 36 hours of training every 3 years. These courses are always specific to Nevada Tax Law, and are occasionally provided by the biannual Assessors Association’s workshops.
