What is California’s Business Property Statement?

By: Doug Bend

Businesses in California are required to file a business property statement (Form 571-L) with their County Assessor by August 31st of each year if:

(1) the County Assessor’s Office sends the business a notice to file the statement or

(2) The business has taxable business property with a total cost of $100,000 or more.

The business property statement includes details of the cost of the company’s equipment, supplies, improvements and fixtures.

We recommend you contact your CPA if you need help filing the business property statement.
