2012 Business Personal Property Tax Returns Mailed
The City of Alexandria has begun mailing 2012 Business Personal Property Tax returns to all businesses that were operating in the City as of January 1, 2012. All returns must be received or postmarked by May 1, 2012. The annual Business Personal Property Tax bill will be based on the return filed with the City. Any business that does not file a return will be statutorily assessed and billed for the Business Personal Property Tax.
All returns should be accompanied by an asset listing or federal depreciation schedule to determine the correct classification of equipment, which will be the basis for the annual business personal property tax assessment. Asset listings should include the original purchase price, a detailed description of the equipment, the original acquisition date and the disposal date, if applicable. Removal of assets from the annual asset list due to disposal, transfer to a new location, or sale must be validated through sufficient documentation, which includes but is not limited to shipping invoices, Federal form 4797, or proof of filing for the equipment with another jurisdiction.
If your business does not receive a business personal property tax return by April 15, has ceased operations or has had a change of address not previously reported to the City, please contact Business Tax staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703.746.3903.
