Tax Reporting of Business Property


Learn about the solutions available to owners of business personal property (BPP) to avoid gross over-assessment.

Business personal property is routinely valued at 150 to 200% of fair market value, with the exception of inventory and vehicles. Inaccurate appraisal district straight-line depreciation schedules and inclusion of intangible personal property (which is not taxable) are the primary causes of gross over-assessment.
Learn about the solutions available to owners of business personal property (BPP). These solutions will include rendering based on market value instead of rendering cost (as allowed by state law), excluding the value of the intangible personal property, and appealing excessive assessments using market value evidence.
