Agricultural Special Use Appraisal – April 30th
Landowners who purchased property that is currently receiving the agricultural special use appraisal were sent an Application for 1-d-1 (Open Space) Agricultural Use Appraisal at the end of December.  If you have not already turned in your completed application, please note the deadline above and do so as soon as possible.  Call our office or visit the Agriculture page for details regarding this special use appraisal and how to qualify.

Business Personal Property – April 15th
Business Personal Property Rendition forms are sent to all active businesses on the tax roll at the end of December as a courtesy. Regardless, businesses are required to submit a rendition form every year before the deadline. Failure to do so may result in a penalty that could affect your property valuation. If your business closed before January 1, 2020, you still need to submit a formal written notice of business closure. Check out the Business page for additional details.
