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.
