Correcting Misclassification of Personal Property Improvements as Real Property
If your company owns the building it occupies, the county will many times apply the cost of your improvements to the real property side of the bill when it should be applied to the personal property. This means that this property will be increase in value each year as opposed to depreciating over a 10 to 15 year period. That can add up to a 200 percent over payment of taxes, and that does not include the time value of money. We have been successful in getting the county to correct this error.
