Personal Property Taxes

Most states have laws permitting personal property to be taxed. Taxable personal property consists of motor vehicles, trailers, campers, mobile homes, boats, airplanes and business personal property. The county tax assessor for your county is responsible for establishing personal property tax rates each year. You will receive an annual bill from the tax assessor if your personal property is being taxed. Some states and counties do not collect personal property taxes, although they can. If you are not being billed, you are not being taxed.

TIP: If you believe your tax rate is too high, you can contest it. There are special forms in the county tax assessor's office. Additionally, there is a deadline for contesting a tax assessment. If it is not printed on your tax bill, call and find out what it is so that you will not miss the deadline.
