Should I have a personal property statement?
Personal property pertains to commercial, industrial or agricultural enterprises, such as businesses, apartments, leaseholds, and farms. Personal property's primary characteristic is its mobility, and includes, but is not limited to, machinery, furniture, fixtures and equipment. Every business must complete a personal property inventory affidavit by April 30 each year and file it with the Whatcom County Assessor's office for taxes due the following year. Personal property tax rates are the same as for real property.
