Nevada Veterans Tax Exemptions Go Online

Posted: Updated:

From the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles

Starting Monday (April 8), Nevada veterans who claim an annual tax exemption on their vehicle registrations will be able to use that exemption during an online vehicle registration renewal. Up until now, veterans could only renew by mail or in-person.

The Department of Motor Vehicles worked with all 17 Nevada county assessors to come up with a system to verify the exemption vouchers that assessors issue. Veterans in 15 of the 17 Nevada counties may use the system now. Clark County exemptions will not be available until later this year due to installation of a new computer system. Douglas County exemptions will be available online in the next few weeks.

One of the first customers to use an exemption online was Caleb Cage, executive director of the Nevada Office of Veterans Services.

"We encourage every eligible veteran to get the exemption and use it online," Cage said. "The DMV's online registration renewal is very easy to use. Claiming the exemption takes just a few extra seconds."

The exemption can save motorists $80 or more on the governmental services tax portion of vehicle registration fees. Those who qualify include veterans with certain periods of service and veterans with a service-connected disability of 60 percent or more. The exemption can be transferred to a spouse, used toward manufactured home taxes or property taxes and/or donated to the state-owned Veterans Home.  Surviving spouses and the blind are also eligible for exemptions.

"We are proud to offer this new service. Veterans have been requesting it since registration renewals were first offered on the Internet," said DMV Director Troy Dillard, adding that exemptions also will be accepted at the DMV's popular self-service kiosks in the near future.

Visit the DMV's website, www.dmvnv.com, for more information.  The online Vehicle Registration Renewal is listed on the home page.  A list of county assessors is located under Offices.
