MCAD Grants Business Owners 30-Day Rendition Extension
If you own a business in Maverick County and have tangible personal property used to produce income such as office equipment or inventory, you must report that property to the Maverick County Appraisal District (MCAD).
While the deadline to file a rendition is April 15, the chief appraiser is granting an automatic extension to May 15 for all business personal property accounts for tax year 2020.
Maggie Mata Duran, Chief Appraiser, decided to grant an automatic extension to May 15 because the community and so many businesses have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. MCAD is reminding all business owners that they must report personal property to the appraisal district by filing a rendition listing the property. Personal property is tangible property that can be owned, but it does not include land or other structures attached to the land such as buildings or fences. Examples of personal property include computers, desks, chairs, office supplies, business inventory, machinery and vehicles used to produce income, along with other items used in the business.
A rendition is a report that lists all the taxable property the business owner owned or controlled on January 1 of this year. Owners do not have to report exempt property, such as church property with an approved religious exemption or an agriculture producer’s equipment used for farming. The appraisal district may use the information submitted in the rendition to set business property values.
If a rendition is not filed, filed late or not complete, a 10 percent penalty may be imposed. Filing a fraudulent rendition carries a 50 percent penalty if found guilty.
The chief appraiser may also grant an additional 15 days after the May 15 deadline if the business owner files a written request before May 15 with the chief appraiser stating a good cause for requesting more time.
The appraisal district has already mailed personal property rendition forms to businesses known to have been operating in Maverick County during 2019. However, all business owners are required to file renditions whether or not they have received notification. A rendition form is available on the appraisal district’s website at www.mcad.org under the “Tax Forms” tab along with information on the rules of the process.
For more information about rendering property, deadline extensions, penalties and rendition forms, taxpayers may call the appraisal district’s office at 830.773.0255.
