February 11, 2015 - Livingston County Assessor Steve Ripley reminds property owners, including businesses, that they must report all personal property owned on January 1 to the assessor's office by March 1, 2015. Those not returning a completed list to the assessor by the deadline may be subject to a penalty. Penalties range from $10 to $100 depending upon the value of the property and state statutes provide the assessor with almost no discretion to waive the penalties. In January, the assessor mailed every property owner reflected on the assessor's records a form upon which the taxable personal property must be reported. If anyone failed to receive a form or lost the form, a new one can be obtained by contacting the assessor's office at 660-646-8000 ext. 2 or stopping by Suite 3 at the Livingston County Courthouse. Residents who are new to the county or a first time property owner must contact the assessor's office to be placed on the books.
