Where’s My Check?
DATE: July 26, 2021
TO: Incline Village & Crystal Bay Property Owners
FROM: Village League Tax Revolt Committee
Dear Incline Village & Crystal Bay Property Owners,
The County Treasurer began refund check distributions on July 1st, as required by our settlement agreement. By our agreement, they must issue no fewer than 300 refunds per month going forward in the order in which they received those claims and finish paying everyone who still owns their residence from 2003-2005 period by year end. You will actually be receiving two checks: one for the excess taxes collected and a second for the interest.
When will your checks arrive? Because the County will be processing at least 300 refunds per month, the claim number printed on your claim form should give you a sense of when your check is likely to arrive. For example, if you hold a claim number between 300 and 600, you might expect to be paid within the first two months.
The actual date could be sooner or later based upon the rate at which the Treasurer mails payments. Just today, for example, they mailed 353 checks. In order to comply with the year-end milestone, the actual average rate of check issuances will have to be more like 600+ per month. There are other factors that can be found within the settlement agreement posted on our website. Thus far, the Treasurer has diligently complied with all agreement milestones.
As a reminder, there are still taxpayers who have not yet submitted their refund claims. Even if you have received notice from the County that you are owed a refund, all taxpayers must complete a refund claim to receive a claim receipt, which is necessary to guarantee your refund. To submit a claim, visit the Treasurer’s website: https://www.washoecounty.us/treas/ivcbclaims/index.php
