Render Business Persoal Property by April 15
LIBERTY, March 3, 2014 - Liberty County Appraisal District Reminds Businesses to Render their Taxable Property by April 15.
If you own tangible personal property that is used to produce income, you must file a rendition with the Liberty County Appraisal District by April 15, 2014.
"The Appraisal District may use the information submitted in the rendition to set property values," said Alan Conner. You can also file a report of decreased value to notify the district of significant depreciation of your property. "For example, if your property was damaged by a storm, flood or fire last year, you should file a report of decreased value. The district will look at your property before assigning a value in 2014," said Conner.
The last day to file a rendition or report of decreased value is April 15, 2014. If a rendition is filed late or incomplete or not at all, a 10 percent to 50 percent penalty may be imposed. Property owners who need more time to file their renditions may file a written request with the Chief Appraiser on or before April 15 to receive an automatic extension to May 15 or the next business day. The Chief Appraiser may also grant an additional 15 days after the postponed deadline, if necessary.
