Today deadline for filing property tax renditionsToday deadline for filing property tax renditionshttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=128682016-04-15T05:00:00Z2016-04-15T14:00:00Z​AUSTIN – Attention, business owners: Today is the deadline to file 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.

Rendering allows property owners to record their opinion of their property's value and ensures that the appraisal district notifies them before changing its recorded value. Exempt property, such as church property and equipment used for farming, is not subject to rendition.

Owners whose property was damaged by storm, flood, or fire last year may file a special decreased value report that could lower their final tax bills for 2016. Property owners have until April 15 to file the decreased value report, which indicates their property's condition on Jan. 1, 2016.

Rendition forms and decreased value report forms are available from county appraisal district offices statewide. They can be downloaded from the Comptroller's rendition forms web page.
