ABOUT LISTING FORMS...The statutory requirements for listing property did not change for 2019, but the Orange County Tax Office asked everyone to return the forms by January 31st to help verify addresses, ensure taxpayers reviewed appraised values and confirm the accuracy of records. The listing form provides examples of property subject to be listed. If a taxpayer has no personal property and no changes to real property for tax year 2019, then there is no penalty associated with not returning the listing form as the property listing is current and accurate. If you meet these requirements and were not able to return the listing form this year, no penalty is associated. Penalty is assessed only when a taxpayer fails to report personal property or changes to real property. If you have personal property or changes to your real property for the tax year 2019, and you have not yet submitted your listing form, you should submit it as soon as possible.
