LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Some property owners in Summerlin are entitled to refunds — many worth thousands of dollars, and some worth hundreds of thousands — from a tax district that expired in December.
And now there is less than a week to claim the refund.
As of May 14, the county’s tax department had heard from the owners of 1,803 properties, who were getting a combined $1,827,588.
That leaves $3.8 million still to be claimed — including some of the biggest refunds on the list.
The deadline to submit a claim is May 24. Claims received after that date cannot be paid, according to county documents.
So where did the money come from?
The money consists of tax payments over and above the cost of a project that began 23 years ago.
Clark County established a special improvement district 23 years ago to landscape and fund other improvements in an area that now includes Red Rock Resort, Willows Park and Garden Park — an area roughly between Charleston Boulevard on the north, Twain Avenue on the south, the 215 Beltway on the west and Hualapai Way on the south. Most of the area falls into the 89135 ZIP code.
In all, the refunds add up to about $5.6 million, out of $37 million collected to complete the project.
Refunds due to residential properties range from $161 to well over $1,000. Some are even in the range of $2,500. More than 4,500 properties are due a refund, and so far, just over 1,800 property owners have put in for refunds as of May 14.
The biggest refunds are owed to owners of commercial properties and undeveloped tracts, which are generally bigger and pay higher tax bills than homeowners.
