Clark County Assessor to speak at Laughlin Leadership forum

Press Release

 Learn about property tax exemptions, caps, at Leadership Forum on March 26  

For Immediate Use: Contact jimmaniaci@centurylink.net or 505-879-3142.  


LAUGHLIN – Assessor Briana Johnson will explain the latest current figures of Clark County’s property tax system – including caps on increases -- as it affects Laughlin businesses and residences during an upcoming Laughlin Leadership Forum sponsored by the Laughlin Economic Development Corporation.  

This will include the 3% and 8% caps imposed by the Legislature. It also will include exemptions for surviving spouses, veterans (including disabled veterans), and blind persons.  

Her PowerPoint program will show the county-wide and local Laughlin figures for property and improvements in both the residential category and the Casino Drive resorts, plus overall county-wide numbers. The charts and graphs will go back to the 2005-2006 fiscal year.  

The public is invited to the free presentation at 5 P.M. (PST) on Thursday, March 26, at the Spirit Mountain Activity Center in Mountain View Park on the Needles Highway in Upper Laughlin.  

“Our vision statement is to be the most technologically advanced, user-friendly, Assessor’s Office in the country,” Johnson said on the Clark County website page for her elected office (clarkcountynv.gov/assessor).  She will cover all the duties of the elected office – “What the assessor does, and doesn’t do,” she said.  

Johnson was elected on November 6, 2018. Prior to that she was the chief assistant to Michele Shafe. Johnson has served the public for more than 20 years in the Assessor's Office. She started in 1995 and held various positions in the Appraisal Division, including Manager of Property Appraisal, prior to being promoted to Assistant Director of Assessment Services in 2016.  She is a Clark County native who graduated from high school in the Vegas Valley and earned her degree at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.

Beach Cafe - Harrah's Laughlin


 Very good breakfast combo at the Beach Cafe in Harrah's Laughlin. Very good service too, fast and friendly.   On a recent staycation visit, we chose to go to the Cafe instead of the Buffet for breakfast. Prices are up a bit, but they seem to be everywhere in Laughlin.  $14.99, although the menu said **13.99 Caesars Rewards price, ask your server, which we didn't do.  Available 24 hours.
