Personal Property & Appeals

Over the last several years there have been significant changes in the assessment process as it relates to personal property, especially for industrial manufacturing property.

Small business taxpayers whose total value of assessable personal property is less than $80,000 may qualify for a tax exemption by timely filing Form 5076 with the Assessing Office.

Taxpayers of Eligible Manufacturing Personal Property are encouraged to file form 5278 and qualify for the ESA specific tax in lieu of the ad valorem property tax. 

These forms are available on line and more details are available under the Personal Property section below.
