Business owners in Nevada County have until May 7, 2024 to file their business property declaration with the Assessor’s Office. The filing period is open from January 1 to April 1, and failure to file on time will result in a 10% penalty.

Assessor Rolf Kleinhans is reminding business owners of the importance of filing their statement on time. Companies have two options for submitting their statements: electronically or by filling out a paper form. If a business receives a notice to file a letter from an assessor, it is required by law to either e-File its statement or complete, sign and return a paper statement to the Assessor’s Office.

Businesses that choose to file electronically received notice to submit letters at the end of January with the necessary information for electronic filing. One of the main benefits of electronic filing is that once the previous year’s procurement cost information is entered into the eFile system, it will be automatically transferred each year, saving time and resources. Businesses will also receive confirmation that their business property declaration has been successfully submitted, providing peace of mind to the business owner.

For those who prefer to file and mail a paper statement, they can download a paper statement of business assets through the e-filing web portal if they have received a notice to file a letter. It is important to note that all information, including the previous year’s expenses, must be entered into the form each year. Paper forms must be completed, signed and postmarked or delivered to the assessor’s office by May 7 or they will be subject to a 10% penalty.

For more information, business owners are encouraged to visit the Business Property website. If they need a resubmitted notice to file or have any additional questions, they can email the assessor’s office at or call 530-265-1259.
