Nevada Revised Statutes
Nevada Revised Statutes contain requirements for publishing notices in newspapers throughout several of its sections.
To see some of the most common — for both government and private notices — visit the notices page at the Nevada Press Association’s main site.
The definition of a newspaper qualified to publish public notices is contained in NRS 238.
Here’s the basic definition:
NRS 238.030 Publication of legal notice or advertisement only in qualified newspaper of general circulation; exceptions.
1. Any and all legal notices or advertisements shall be published only in a daily, a triweekly, a semiweekly, a semimonthly, or a weekly newspaper of general circulation and printed in whole or in part in the county in which the notice or advertisement is required to be published, which newspaper if published:
(a) Triweekly, semiweekly, semimonthly, or weekly, shall have been so published in the county, continuously and uninterruptedly, during the period of at least 104 consecutive weeks next prior to the first issue thereof containing any such notice or advertisement.
(b) Daily, shall have been so published in the county, uninterruptedly and continuously, during the period of at least 1 year next prior to the first issue thereof containing any such notice or advertisement.
4. If in any county in this State there shall not have been published therein any newspaper or newspapers for the prescribed period, at the time when any such notice or advertisement is required to be published, then such notice or advertisement may be published in any newspaper or newspapers having a general circulation and printed and published in whole or in part in the county.
NRS 238.040 Second-class mailing permit required for qualification. After December 31, 1954, no newspaper is competent as the means for the publication of any legal notice or advertisement unless the newspaper possesses and maintains in force a valid second-class mailing permit issued by the United States Postal Service.
