Assessor’s office online declaration filing service saves money



This year, Washoe County business and aircraft owners will be able to file their personal property declarations with the Washoe County Assessor’s Office online using e-Dec, an online filing service. The online e-Dec system saves taxpayer money by reducing both supply and staff costs compared with the previous manual, paper intense reporting system.

For Washoe County businesses, there is no cost for filing online, the program is easy to use, work is saved automatically and there is no postage needed to return a declaration.

Chief Deputy Assessor Theresa Wilkins outlines the Washoe County Assessor’s Office commitment to streamlining systems and reducing waste, “Beginning in 2006 the Washoe County Assessor’s Office was the first county in Nevada to offer taxpayer’s the ability to file their commercial personal property declarations online. Last year over 9,000 taxpayers used the e-Dec program. While the new process isn’t entirely paperless, it is cost-efficient and reduces paper waste.”

Annually, businesses are required to submit a form to the assessor’s office that indicates taxable personal property. This year, instead of the paper declaration, instruction sheet and return envelope mailed annually to business owners, a postcard-sized notice will be sent around June 25. The postcard includes detailed instructions on using the online program, including an activation PIN needed to log onto the secure server. Washoe County business owners must submit their forms to the assessor’s office by July 31. Thirty-day extensions may be granted upon request.

Available at http://www.washoecounty.us/assessor/FileOnLine.htm , e-Dec is one of the multiple new and improved online filing systems offered by the Washoe County assessor’s office. If you have any questions about the new process, or wish to attend a training session, please contact the Personal Property Division of the Washoe County Assessor’s Office at 775.328.2213 or visit http://www.washoecounty.us/assessor/.
