Businesses that receive a bill based on a statutory assessment should complete the 2017 Business Personal Property Tax Return and provide an itemized asset listing to receive an accurate bill. Businesses that have relocated within the City but have not previously reported this change will be required to complete an interdepartmental form for the new location.
