If you own a business – furniture, fixtures, equipment, inventory, and supplies are considered personal property. Ownership of personal property is established as of January 1 each year. A property tax return must be filed with the Tax Assessor’s Office annually by April 1. Tax returns are usually mailed out in January. You are required to send in a tax return each year you are in business. It must be established that you are no longer in business in order to discontinue tax generation. If a tax return is not filed, state established values are assessed on the property, and tax payment is expected.
Assessment Notices are normally mailed in the spring by the tax assessors office. There is an appeal period of 45 days. Any questions concerning valuations (assessments) should be directed to the Tax Assessor’s Office by calling 912-764-2181.
