Nevada’s property tax statute says DEPRECIATION is the estimate of the decrease in value in a wasting asset (not land) due to such factors as use and obsolescence. In Nevada, for purposes of real property appraisal, depreciation is calculated at 1.5 percent of the cost of replacement for each year up to 50 years.
