Throughout the United States, the process of challenging a property tax assessment goes by different names, such as appeal, protest, abatement, or petition. Regardless of the terminology, the objective remains the same: to reduce the tax assessment and save valuable tax dollars.

What is Business Personal Property Tax?

Business personal property tax is a self-reporting tax. Taxpayers file a return listing tangible assets they possess as of a specific date. Annual filings of Business Personal Property Tax renditions are required by assessing jurisdictions. Failure to file can result in arbitrary assessments by assessors. Depreciation tables are commonly used, considering the acquisition date and cost of assets, to account for their declining value over time. These tables often include various rates of depreciation to accommodate different asset types. Assets falling under business personal property typically include:
  • Furniture & Fixtures
  • Machinery & Equipment
  • Computer Equipment
  • Office Equipment
  • Vehicles
  • Inventory
