Assessor Ripley Reminds Livingston County Residents Of Assessment Form Deadline

Personal property owners, including businesses, are minded they must report personal property owned on January 1st to the Assessor’s Office by March 1st.  Earlier this year, the Assessor mailed a list to those personal property owners whose names appeared on the tax rolls.

Those not returning a completed list to the Assessor’s office by the March 1st deadline are subject to a penalty.  Ripley says “Penalties range from $10 to $100 depending on the value of the property.”  He says  “The statutes provide the assessor with almost no discretion to waive the penalties.”

Property owners who have not received a personal property list or who are new to the County are not excused from filing and should contact the assessor office at 660-646-8000 ext. 2 or stop by the office on the first floor of the courthouse.

Ripley says with less than a month remaining before the deadline, they have received only 47% of the personal property assessment lists.
