Business Personal Property


The Business Personal Property (BPP) department is responsible for maintaining all personal property accounts.  This includes reporting new accounts as of January 1st of each year, reviewing renditions on the personal property accounts, and deleting accounts that are no longer in business as of January 1st.  The appraises conduct field inspections of the accounts annually.  The department is also responsible for calculating abatements on accounts – real property and personal property – for the taxing entities involved.  The Business Personal Property department used various websites and/or publications to assist in the valuation of the property, i.e. construction guides and machinery trade publications.
