Property Tax Liens
The City of Winchester does not sell delinquent property tax bills. However, a Lien on your property may be filed with the Clark County clerk for unpaid tax bills. If we do file a lien on your property, it will cost an additional $146 fee. To release a tax lien, this fee must be paid, along with the taxes (plus penalty and interest already accrued) at the Finance Department in City Hall.

The tax lien process begins in the spring following the tax year. We always send out delinquent tax bills and then a follow-up letter before a lien is filed.
