Buying or Selling a Business

 What if I'm buying or selling a business?

  • Delinquent taxes become a lien on the personal property of a business. If you are buying or selling a business, it is important you contact the assessor's office to insure there are not any outstanding taxes due on the equipment you are buying/selling.
  • Anyone buying or starting a business should notify the county assessor. This will allow an account to be established and a personal property return can be requested.  It is the business owners responsibility to obtain a Personal property return and file by March 1st.
