What is the Process for Closing a Business?

When a business is closed, the Personal Property Division of the Assessor's Office must be notified in writing on or before March 1 of the current tax year enclosing a copy of the finalized business license, if applicable. Failure to do so will result in a forced assessment for that tax year.

Mail all correspondence concerning Personal Property to:

Shelby County Assessor
Personal Property Division
