Business Personal Property

Business Personal Property

When owning a business, the tangible assets that are used to produce income are required to be rendered. Rendering is a method that is used to determine the value of a business by providing data of furniture & fixtures, equipment, machinery, raw materials, computers, and inventory held for sale or rental. Our business personal property appraiser will visit new and existing business locations to educated property owners on the process of the rendition, what can and cannot be rendered for property tax purposes, and to provide a point of contact. A tour of the facility may be requested to audit the current inventory.

Need to update business name, contact information, or mailing address?

This can be relayed by completing section 1 of the rendition form and listing that information specifically. 


Business sold, moved, or closed?

It’s important to notify WCAD that you have closed your business to ensure that we have updated our records so future tax bills will not be generated. Section 4 for the Rendition form will allow the business owner the ability to list the date the business was sold, moved, closed, or new location address. Supporting document should be provided when closing the business such as cancelled Sales Tax ID from the State Comptroller, Inactive SOS status from Secretary of State, DBA abandoned – Wilco Co Clerks office, Cancelled or Final Utility Bill, “Final” prior year IRS tax return, or lease termination.


Filing Extension

A filing extension can be requested in writing, the request must be submitted the day of or before April 15th allowing the rendition deadline to be May 15th. To request a rendition extension an email address can be sent to with the quick reference number listed in the subject line. The quick reference number can be located at the top left corner of the screen on the property search function or at the top right on the Notice of Appraise Value.
