ATTENTION BUSINESS OWNERS

Owners of business personal property are encouraged to join the nearly thirty thousand taxpayers who in prior years have opted to file their property statement electronically. By filing on-line you are choosing a "green" alternative that maximizes efficiency for your business and the Assessor’s Office saving all of us time and money.

As in the past the process to file electronically is secure and fast. Most e-filings can be completed in about 15 to 30 minutes. When you or your representative has completed the form you’ll receive an immediate, on-line confirmation of your filing. In addition, you’ll have the ability to print a copy for your records.

In addition to popular features such as the ability to e-file construction in progress (CIP), the Assessor’s Office is also pleased to announce in 2014 several new exclusive features for taxpayers who file on-line including:

  • Past property statements now on-line. For taxpayers who have filed electronically in any of the years since 2010 you can now log in and download those property statements as well as the 2013 value summary.
  • BIN numbers are not changing. Unlike past years the BIN number for each account will not change annually. While the assessor’s will continue to mail the Account and PIN number to protect your privacy, if you have your Account number and PIN from last year you can file immediately.

Unfortunately, owners of apartments, aircrafts or commercial agricultural property will need to file with a paper form which may be downloaded on-line. In the future, depending upon demand, the Assessor’s Office plans to automate the process for these property owners as well.
