Nevada County Assessor urges businesses to submit Business Property Statements promptly to avoid fines.

Last-Minute Reminder: Businesses in Nevada County Have Until May 7 to File Property Statement without Penalty

Business owners in Nevada County have only a few weeks left to file their Business Property Statement with the Assessor’s Office. The filing period is open from January 1 through April 1, with May 7, 2024, being the last day to file without incurring a penalty of 10%.

There are two options for businesses to file their Business Property Statements: electronically or using a paper form. Those who receive a notice to file letter must eFile their statement or complete, sign, and return a paper statement to the Assessor’s Office. Additionally, any business that owns Personal Property and/or Fixtures totaling $100,000 or more in combined cost is required to file a Business Property Statement, even if not specifically requested to do so by the Assessor.

Additionally, businesses will receive confirmation that their Business Property Statement has been successfully filed, providing peace of mind to the business owner.
