Annual Listing

January is the annual listing period. By law, personal property must be listed by Jan. 31, 2024 to avoid a 10% listing penalty. The property owner is responsible for completing and submitting a listing form to the Tax Office by Jan. 31, 2024. The listing form should include any physical changes that could affect the owner’s real property value and any personal property owned as of Jan. 1, 2024, such as adding to an existing structure. Listing forms submitted after Jan. 31, 2024, are subject to a 10% late list fee.
