Find a lender near you in the Biggest Little City in the World.
There are plenty of last-minute financing options in Reno if you need a small-dollar loan. But it can get expensive. Nevada allows lenders to charge as much as they want in interest — and you can renew your payday loan for up to 60 days after the original term.
Can I get a payday loan in Reno, Nevada?
Yes, you can get a payday loan in Reno. Lenders follow the same payday loan laws as other Nevada cities:
- How much you can borrow: Up to 25% of your monthly income before taxes
- How long you have to pay it back: 35 days with the option to renew for up to 60 more days
- Maximum APR: None
Check to make sure your lender has a state license before applying — it’s required by Nevada law. Payday lenders are also required to make sure you can afford to repay the loan, so expect your lender to ask for proof of income or bank statements when you apply.

What do I need to apply?
What you need to apply varies by lender, though you typically must:
- Have a regular source of income. While you might not need to have a job, Reno lenders are required to make sure you have enough money coming in to pay off your loan.
- Have a checking account. Some lenders require your account to be active for a certain number of days.
- Have a Social Security number. You typically need to submit your Social Security number when applying for any loan, though some lenders might also accept a tax identification number.
- Be a US citizen or permanent resident. If you’re on a visa, you might want to look into loans for nonresidents instead.
- Be over 18. The minimum age to take out a loan in Reno is 18 years old.
You can also expect to be asked for some or all of the following documents when you apply:
- Proof of income. Pay stubs, bank statements or any other documents showing that you have money coming in are acceptable.
- Personal check. If you’re applying at a payday loan store, it’s common for lenders to ask you to bring a blank check. Online applicants typically must provide a bank account and routing number instead.
- Valid government-issued ID. Payday lenders typically accept any photo ID issued by Nevada or the federal government.
- Proof of residence. In addition to your state-issued ID, some lenders might ask to see proof that you live where you say you do — such as a recent utility bill.

Be cautious of unlicensed lenders
Since Nevada requires all lenders to be licensed, it’s easy to make sure the company you’re working with is legit. If you don’t see its license displayed prominently online or in the store, ask to see it. If it can’t produce it, look elsewhere for financing.
Not comfortable working with a payday lender — even if it’s licensed? Look into local resources available to Nevada residents or see if a federal credit union near you offers payday alternative loans, which come with APRs capped at 28%.
You have three main options when it comes to short-term loans in Reno, Nevada. But with no legal limit to how much a short-term lender can charge, APRs can reach well into the triple digits.
