Brazoria Central Appraisal District Values Up – Too Much Some Think!

Brazoria Central Appraisal District announced the personal property rendition deadline has been delayed until May 15th.   Owners of personal property, used for the production of income, aka business personal property, are required to “render” property annually or face a 10% penalty.

Unfortunately, if you complete the Brazoria County Appraisal District form, it will effectively indicate a value double the correct value.  I feel so strongly about this I wrote the book listed below and available on Amazon.

Brazoria County Appraisal District (BCAD) property values, for purposes of property taxes, will not consider Covid-19 or $20 oil prices, due to the January 1, 2020 valuation date.

Owners of business personal property are required to render annually.  There is a 10% penalty, in addition to the property taxes, if you do not render.  However, if you render, you will likely indicate a value MUCH higher than fair market value.

Be wary about rendering as requested on the Brazoria Appraisal District form; it will tend the generate a value TWICE the fair value, with the exception of inventory, which is much closer using the Brazoria Central Appraisal District Method.

P.S.  Business owners are warned not to complete the rendition form in the manner requested by the appraisal district.  Doing so will roughly double your Business Personal Property (BPP) taxes.  Details available via link:
