For the 2014 tax year, legislation was passed that exempts certain “Eligible Personal Property” from taxation. Businesses that own personal property of less than a true cash value of $80,000 ($40,000 assessed value) may be entitled to an exemption for the 2014 tax year. To qualify for the Eligible Personal Property exemption, the qualifying business MUST FILE Form 5076 with the local assessor by February 10, 2014. If the business fails to file the Form 5076, the local assessor is obligated to place an assessment, even if the assessor’s estimate is less than the $80,000 true cash value threshold.

Personal Property Statements were mailed to taxpayers shortly after January 1, 2014. If you have questions regarding this issue, please contact your local assessor.
