What happens if I fail to file?
The late filing penalty is $50 or 15% of the taxes due, whichever is less. If you fail to file a Declaration Schedule, the Assessor may determine a valuation based on the Best Information Available (BIA) and may add a penalty of 25% of the assessed value for omitted property. If it is the first time you have received a Declaration Schedule from our office and we do not receive it back, we will try to make an appointment with you to do an onsite review of your property prior to assigning it a BIA value. However, we have a small window (60 calendar days) in which look at all the returned schedules, assign values and get the Notice of Value (NOV) out to the taxpayers. Once a BIA value has been assigned, if you do not protest when you receive your NOV, our hands are tied as to being able to correct any errors.
