County Assessor
Teresa Salinger


On August 17, 2020 Governor Ricketts signed into law LB 1107 a Bill for an act relating to revenue and taxation which effectively eliminates the Personal Property Tax Relief Act for tax year 2020 and each tax year thereafter.  This means that the exemption from taxation for the first $10,000 of valuation for tangible personal property in each tax district is no longer valid and taxes will apply to the full value of tangible personal property reported for the current tax year.

For the safety of our employees and public, protests will be conducted through mail only due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.  No face to face hearings will be held this year. 

Prior to filing your protest you are encouraged to review your property information on the Cass County website www.cassne.org  or by calling the Assessor’s Office to speak with an appraiser at 402-296-9310.  Office hours are 8-12 and 1-5, M-F.

If you wish to file a protest after reviewing your record, include all written sufficient documentation with your forms.  For example; date stamped photos (no hand written dates), a complete copy of a recent appraisal if you have one or any other documentation you feel is important to support your recommended value. 

For complete filing instructions and forms go to the Cass County website.  Forms can be submitted to the County Clerk’s Office between June 1 and June 30, 2020.  For your convenience there is also a drop box located on the south side of the steps on the west side of the courthouse.

Anyone owning property in the areas mentioned above will be receiving questionnaires in the mail to verify property data.  These questionnaires can be mailed back to the Assessor’s Office or put in the drop box on the west side of the courthouse. Owners can find questionnaires on the county website by going to www.cassne.org and clicking Departments, Assessor.
In addition to reappraisal, appraisers will be doing sale reviews and permit/pickup work throughout the county.
Appraisers can be identified by their orange reflective vests and county issued badges from the Sheriff’s Office.  If you have concerns please call the Assessor’s Office.
