General Information

Personal Property Tax Returns
We accept Personal Property Tax Returns from January 1 to April 1. If you own a business with furniture, fixtures, machinery, equipment, and/or inventory, an airplane, or a boat and/or motor, you must file a return. You are responsible for reporting all taxable personal property or penalties will be assessed. We mail Personal Property Tax Return forms as a courtesy, but not receiving one does not relieve your responsibility for filing a return.

Distributors and/or manufacturing businesses may be eligible for an inventory exemption. Visit the Business Personal Property webpage for more information.

Tangible Business Assets, Aircraft, and Marine Appeals

The final deadline to file an appeal was September 2, 2014. Appeals must have been made in writing and either hand-delivered to our office or USPS postmarked no later than September 2, 2014. There are no exceptions and appeals filed by email or fax were not acceptable.

For more information, please visit the Personal Property FAQs page or you may contact the Personal Property Division at 770.822.7220.

Important notice: Metered mail is not accepted as proof of timely filing of a tax return or appeal.  Only the USPS cancellation stamp or certified mail tracking will be considered when determining if either has been filed on time.  In the case that the Tax Assessors’ Office considers a tax return or appeal as being filed late, the burden of proof falls on the taxpayer.
