As of January 1, 2009, all business personal property will be described using standardized categories and sub-categories. The reason this is required is so that we can make it easier for businesses to file business personal property declaration schedules and to allow for online filing.
What this means to you as a business personal property owner is this:
You will need to complete the declaration schedule by listing your personal property items using the standardized categories and subcategories and include the year purchased, number of units and total original installed cost.
Once we establish this baseline information, we will return to our practice of sending each owner a list of their prior year declaration using the new categories and subcategories.
Follow these links to view an informational packet which includes a list of the new categories and sub-categories.
You should review and categorize your business personal property items with the new categories (PDF) and sub-category (PDF) names so that you will be prepared to complete the declaration schedule when it comes in January.
Please call our Personal Property Department at 303-271-8693 if you have specific questions.
