Owners of taxable personal property are required to list on an annual basis, from January 1 through January 31 each year. The Tax Office mails out prepopulated listing abstracts in December each year, which contain a listing of the prior years assets. Abstracts are also mailed out to taxpayers who acquired real estate in the county during the prior year, and may not be familiar with the Tax Listing requirements.
The Listings Division utilizes various data sources to identify unlisted property, including manufactured homes, boats, aircraft, and business personal property. Property owners are contacted to verify the listing, and the unlisted property is "discovered" for the current tax year and prior years in which the property was not listed (maximum 5 years). Failure to list results in a 10% penalty for each listing period in which the property was not listed.
Once property is properly listed, the taxpayer will receive a prepopulated listing abstract in future tax years.
