Filing Requirement

This declaration must be filed with the Assessor of the town where the personal property is located. Declarations of personal property shall be made annually.

If you no longer own the above noted business or personal property assessed in your name last year, you do not need to complete this declaration. You must, however, return this declaration to the Assessor and complete the Affidavit of Business Closing or Moved or Sold that provides information related to the name of the new owner of the property or the date your business ceased or to where the business moved. (View Sample Affidavit). Otherwise, the Assessor must assume that you are still operating the business and still own and have failed to declare your taxable personal property. This Affidavit of Business Closing or Moved or Sold can be found under the Business Info tab in the menu bar at the top of the page or in the margin to the left.

If you have purchased new assets AND HAVE NOT DISPOSED OF ANYTHING since last year, you can simply click on the Add Current Year Assets under the Taxable Assets tab on the menu bar and enter your new purchases.

Otherwise, please click on the View Declaration Instructions link below and read the instructions carefully.
