Personal property is assessed annually by the property owner. The time frame to assess personal property is from the first working day in January to May 31. You can assess personal property in person, by phone, by mail or by fax. Assessments by telephone will not be taken for the initial listing of personal property being assessed to an individual who has no previous assessment on record with the assessor (first-time assessments and new residents, for example). May 31 is the deadline to assess personal property. By state law, a 10% penalty is applied to property not assessed by the deadline.
