Business Personal Property

The Business Personal Property Division oversees the annual reassessment of operating property of railroads and public utilities and personal property of businesses. Property tax reports are filed with, and reviewed by, the Division annually. Thereafter, the values are certified to the subdivisions so that they may issue tax bills. The Division administers franchise taxes applicable to the net income of finance companies and savings and loan associations and to the gross receipts of public service corporations.
