Business Owners-Personal Property

All persons liable to pay PERSONAL PROPERTY TAXES in the Town of Kent are required to return to the Assessor’s office, on or before November 1st of the year a list of taxable personal property belonging to them on the first day of October of the same year.

All business assets include, but are not limited to: manufacturing and industrial machinery and equipment; office fixtures, furniture, equipment and supplies; farm machinery and tools; tools of your trade; electronic data processing equipment.

All horses, ponies, unregistered motor vehicles, vehicles registered out of state that are garaged in Kent and leased equipment located in the Town of Kent are taxable, whether they are a business asset or a personal asset.

Any business or individual required to return a list may obtain the proper form from the Assessor’s office, if they have not received a form in the mail.

Failure to receive a form by mail does not excuse a property owner from filing.
