HANSFORD COUNTY APPRAISAL DISTRICT REMINDS BUSINESSES TO
RENDER THEIR TAXABLE PROPERTY BY APRIL 1st
If you own tangible personal property that is used to produce income, then a rendition must be filed with the Hansford County Appraisal District by April 1, 2020. A rendition is a report that lists all the taxable property you owned or controlled on Jan. 1 of this year. Property includes inventory and equipment used by a business. Owners do not have to render exempt property, such as church property or an agriculture producer’s equipment used for farming.
The last day to file a rendition or report of decreased value is April 1, 2020. If a rendition is not filed, or is late or incomplete, a 10 to 50 percent penalty may be imposed. Property owners who need more time to file their renditions may file a written request with the chief appraiser on or before April 1 to receive an automatic extension to May 1 or the next business day. The chief appraiser may also grant an additional 15 days after the postponed deadline, if a reasonable request is made.
For more information about rendering property, deadline extensions, penalties and rendition forms, taxpayers may contact the Hansford County Appraisal District at 709 W. 7th Ave, or call 806-659-5575.
