Report the details (including the disposition of property) to our office via e-mail or on the listing. If the equipment is in your possession, continue to file the listing - due every April 30th, as usual. Please don't confuse relocating, selling, walking away from, or reorganizing the business, with closing it. You still need to report the equipment.
If you don't have the equipment, we need to know what you did with it. Specifically: the date that the business closed and the location of the equipment. If sold: sale date, sale price, new owner's name, new owner's address.
Send us the following document(s), within the appeal deadline, and we will review the assessment:
You can print a blank affidavit (PDF), or request one by email.
No, changes can only be made by written notification. Email us with the changes or annotate them on the listing.
We will accept them at any time, but a listing must be postmarked by April 30th to avoid a late filing penalty.
You have 30 days from the date on the notice of value.
Any equipment used in the operation of a business.
Yes, it should be reported regardless of the percentage of use.
There is $15,000 "Head of Household" exemption from the reported assessed value for sole proprietors only, this would affect taxes due in 2008. You must claim this on your listing every year. We will review your eligibility and apply the exemption as applicable.
We add 5% per month (or fraction of a month) to your tax bill, not to exceed 25% of the total tax.
If there are extenuating circumstances, notify us of the details.
Supplies are items used or consumed in the operation of the business.
Take the total amount purchased by the business annually and divide by 12. Enter that amount in block 3 of the listing.
The first half is due by April 30th and the second half by October 31st. Personal and real property taxes are due at the same time.
Same as real property, approximately 1.4% of the assessed value per year.
