Tangible personal property is everything
other than real estate that has value in and of itself. This
ad valorem tax is levied against the equipment of a business,
or the attachments to a mobile home that is on rental property.
Ad valorem taxes on tangible personal property are collected
on an annual basis. Collection of the tangible personal property
taxes begins November 1st for the tax year January through
December. The office of the Property Appraiser establishes
the value of the property and the Board of County Commissioners
and other taxing authorities set the respective millage rates.
Using these values, and allowing for exemptions, the tax
roll is completed by the Property Appraiser. The tax roll
is then certified to the Tax Collector. From this information,
the Tax Collector prints and mails the tax notice to the owner’s
last recorded address as it appears on the tax roll. IT
IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF EACH PROPERTY OWNER TO SEE THAT THEIR
TAXES ARE PAID, AND THAT THEY DO INDEED RECEIVE A TAX BILL.
