Personal Property is a self-assessment. The taxpayer is responsible for reporting all tangible personal property that is used in their trade or business, used for the production of income, or held as an investment that should be or is subject to depreciation for federal income tax purposes – no matter how large or small your business is. Inventory is no longer taxed, and anything that has a plate on it from the BMV (vehicles) is not taxable.

It is the taxpayer's responsibility to obtain and file the correct forms. Forms may be requested by email from, or blank forms are available on the DLGF website. Please note, it is also the taxpayer's responsibility to inform the Assessor's Office if their business closes. Failure to let the Assessor know of such closure will still result in an accumulation of penalties for each year until we are notified. 
Forms must be filed with the County Assessor by May 15th. Late forms will receive a $25 late fee. (Assessors do not have the authority to waive penalties for late forms.)

***New Legislative Changes for 2023***
  • Churches and religious societies no longer need to file personal property forms if they have filed previously. The property tax exemption may still be claimed.

  • Those with TOTAL acquisition cost less than 80,000 no longer need to file a personal property form, unless you no longer qualify for the under 80,000 exemption. So, if last year you claimed the under 80,000 exemption box at the top of the form, you no longer need to file unless you have acquired more equipment and your acquisition cost is no longer under the 80,000 (countywide).

As always, someone from the Assessor's Office will be available to assist taxpayers with the filing of their personal property forms.
