Personal Property

Personal Property, unlike real property, is not subject to the restrictions of Proposition 13 and is instead assessed each year at its full market value as of the lien date (January 1). Although assessed differently, the tax rate for both personal and real property at the same location is the same.

Business Personal Property is reported to the Assessor annually on a form known as the Business Property Statement (BPS) - Form BOE - 571 - L(or F). Any business owner to whom the Assessor sends a written request to file must complete and sign a Business Property Statement that lists the cost of supplies, equipment, and fixtures at each business location as of the lien date (January 1). Additionally, anyone owning business personal property with a cost exceeding $100,000 must also annually file a Business Property Statement whether or not the Assessor requests they do.

Businesses who must file Business Property Statements in multiple Counties may find it beneficial to file via SDR (Standard Data Record). Please click HERE to go to the SDR website for more information.

If you do not receive a Business Property Statement between January 1 and March 1, or have other questions, please contact the Assessor's Personal Property Division at (559) 675-7710 (8am-5pm, weekdays), or by fax at (559) 675-7654.

Privately and commercially-owned vessels and aircraft are also subject to personal property taxes. On the other hand, certain types of personal property are exempt from property tax and among these types are: household personal effects, business inventories, and licensed vehicles (i.e., those paying an in-lieu property tax as part of their registration fee).
