Buying or Selling a Business

Information on buying or selling a business

NOTE: 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 or selling.
  • Anyone buying or starting a business should notify the county assessor early in the process. This will allow an account to be established and a personal property return can be requested and mailed directly to you.

It is the business owner's responsibility to obtain a Personal property return and file by March 15th of each year.

Don't have a return? Submit an Ownership Transfer Request Form.
