First off, what is this?

Navigating the realm of business personal property tax might sound complex, but with Peisner Johnson by your side, it becomes a seamless journey toward savings and compliance. Let's dive into what business personal property tax entails and how our services can alleviate the burden, ensuring your peace of mind.

Demystifying business personal property tax

Business personal property tax involves two key players: the assessor and the collector. Generally, businesses file personal property tax returns with the assessor. This type of tax goes beyond land and structures, extending to tangible personal property (TPP) that includes movable assets such as machinery, equipment, inventory, and furniture.

The landscape of business personal property tax

In forty-three states, TPP is part of the property tax base, making it a significant consideration. The proportions vary, with state reliance on personal property ranging from 1.79 percent to about 29 percent. While the average state tax base's reliance on personal property has seen a decline from 11.27 percent to 9.98 percent between 2006 and 2017, the complexity and impact remain noteworthy.

The tax complexity puzzle

Tangible personal property taxes create complexity and distortions in the business landscape. These taxes influence investment decisions and sometimes push businesses to relocate for tax relief. Different types of TPP even receive preferential treatment, further complicating economic decisions

Navigating the solutions

State and local governments have options to ease the TPP tax burden. These include exemptions, assessment ratio adjustments, and streamlining tax-related procedures. The experience of states expanding TPP tax exemptions in recent years offers valuable insights for policymakers.
