April 17 is the deadline for filing property tax renditions with county appraisal districts. A rendition is a list of the taxable inventory, furniture and fixtures, machinery, equipment, and other property owned or managed as of Jan. 1 of each year. The appraisal district may use the information to set property values. Rendition allows property owners to record their opinion of their property’s value and ensures the appraisal district notifies them before changing its recorded value.
Owners whose property was damaged by storm, flood, or fire last year may file a decreased-value report that could lower their final tax bills for 2017.
Rendition forms and decreased-value report forms are available at http://www.dallascad.org/forms.aspx or from the Comptroller’s property tax forms web page.
