Las Vegas Wages

I just used the monster salary wizard.
It came out with the following.

Medical Billing Clerk  
Las Vegas, NV  between $27,292 and $33,126

Does this seem about right to anyone? I have only 1 years work experience and dont want to miss out on a job because I ask for to much!

Yes, that sounds about right.  And that's one reason why I started my own medical billing business was because the salaries seemed a little low.  Good luck on getting the job!  :-)

Thank Katie, yes it is a little low if you have good tastes in fashion like I do.

I dont want to know how much you make now, though is it that much of a difference compared to working for someone?

I fished my Billing course about 6 months ago. Luckly I got a job here in vegas. I am on $14 per hour. Which I think is really good for someone with only 6 months experience. As most of the other jobs I saw in the paper were for only $9 to $11.

I am also from Las Vegas. I think the going rate for anyone with less than 3 years experience, can be as low as $9.00 an hour. But most start off in the High $10.00 an hour.

Living expences here in vegas are much less than in say New York or LA. I bought a nice 3 bedroom home here for only $195,000.

Did I once hear that in Los Vegas there is no State Taxes taken out of your pay?  Or was it that there is no Property Taxes?

Hi Brenda,

We don't pay state taxs. That is correct.

They have also just passed a bill to cap property tax at no more than 3% per annum. So this is great as the average property went up 57% over the past 18 months.
