The time for filing returns is January 1 through April 1. These returns are filed with the Dawson County Tax Assessors’ Office as designated by the Dawson County Tax Commissioner. The tax return is a listing of property owned by the taxpayer and the taxpayer’s declaration of value of the property.

Real Property consists of real estate and any improvements permanently affixed thereto, such as buildings. Property Tax Returns are required when you have made any change to your real estate. This would include adding or removing buildings, acreage changes, adding or removing improvements such as pools, paving, etc.

If you do not agree with your previous year’s value, you may also file a Property Tax Return to state your opinion of value. This will require the Board of Assessors to review your property and its value.
