Filing renditions on time and protesting your Business Personal Property (BPP) can save you money in penalties and property taxes. The State of Texas mandates that Business Personal Property (BPP) must be rendered annually. It defines BPP as "items that can be owned, but are not attached to the land"; property that is used to produce income. Business Personal Property is any property you own that is used for business purposes. It is not your real property. BPP generally includes computers, equipment, fixtures, furniture, inventory, machinery, supplies, vehicles and other items in your place of business or related to your business that are moveable without causing damage to itself or the associated real property.

Bettencourt Tax Advisors' senior property tax agents and property tax agents have decades of experience that can help you gain the best results. Understanding how your county depreciation schedules are applied to different types of equipment and inventory can have a large impact on your bottom line. There are 254 counties in Texas and many have their own depreciation method. BTA's experts have years of experience working with these different county depreciation methods and know how to apply them to reclassify items, as necessary, to correctly report your BPP.
