Personal Property Taxes

MCL 211.19 states that all businesses must complete and file a personal property statement form 632 (L-4175) to the City or Township where the personal property is located on or before February 20th of each year. Personal property includes machinery, equipment, computers, furniture, signs, etc. used by the business.

Recent change in personal property taxation may exempt certain personal property owners from property tax. The change created two possible ways to receive the exemption both require filing form 5076, each of the two possible exemptions listed below.

Situation “A”) If the combined total personal property under their CONTROL (possession) different from OWNED is less than 80,000. The business owner is required to file an affidavit form number 5076 to claim exemption from property tax.
