Frequently Asked Questions

What assets do I need to report?

ORS308.290)3)(a) Each return of personal property shall contain a full listing of the property and a statement of its real market value, including a separate listing of those items claimed to be exempt as imports or exports. Most businesses of any type will have a phone so that people may contact them.If you don’t have a phone please tell us why. If you report assets without purchase years, model years or cost information a value will be estimated from our best available information. Which can include other like type items on your account, like type items from other similar businesses, or an estimate found through researching the asset value. Should you fail to report assets that the Assessor’s office have found to be in your possession we may place an estimate of value on them and you will be taxed accordingly.
