To access your account, use the unique secure code printed on your personal property assessment form. To update your account simply follow the step-by-step instructions, review and submit. Property owners are requested to claim taxable personal property owned on January 1 of the tax year. The deadline for filing is March 1. Failure to comply with the statutory deadline shall result in a late assessment penalty up to $100.
Between March 1st and April 1st, the Assessor's Office shall send a 2nd notice to each taxpayer who was sent an assessment form for the current tax year, when the 1st form sent was not returned to the Assessor. The 2nd form should be returned immediately to avoid a penalty. If the taxpayer returns the assessment form before May 1st, late filing penalties shall not be applied. If forms are not returned before May 1st, the penalty shall be applied.
