2011 Business Personal Property Tax Returns Due May 2

News Highlights:

  • 2011 Business Personal Property Tax Returns due May 2, 2011.
  • The City will conduct a statutory assessment of any business that fails to meet this deadline.
  • All returns should be accompanied by an asset listing or federal depreciation schedule.

More Information: 

The City of Alexandria reminds businesses that the 2011 Business Personal Property Tax Return is due May 2 from all businesses that were operating in the City as of January 1.  The City will conduct a statutory assessment of any business that fails to meet this deadline.  This statutory assessment may result in a higher 2011 tax bill. 

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 City’s 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 you have not received a business personal property tax return, please contact Business Tax at businesstax@alexandriava.gov or call 703.746.3903.  Please note that failure to receive a return is not a basis for waiving the late filing penalty assessed on any return not received by the due date.  Businesses that have had a change of address and have not previously reported this change to the City should also contact Business Tax.
