Business Personal Property
Business personal property is all the personal property, income producing property, supplies, and leasehold improvements owned by a business or used by an individual for income purposes. Specific examples include:
- Computer equipment and software
- Leasehold improvements (improvements made to leased real property)
- Machinery and equipment
- Office furniture and fixture
Businesses must list property owned as of Jan. 1 at its historical installed cost. The Assessor’s business personal property appraisers will determine the depreciation schedules that apply based on the type of business (or property) being valued. Mecklenburg County uses the North Carolina Department of Revenue’s Cost Index & Depreciation Schedules for most business personal property.
