    Posted by James Frazier on Apr 21, 2021 5:37:00 PM

    Business property tax in California has continued to increase in recent years. In fact, in 2017, California had the largest dollar increase in the U.S. in business property tax revenue—$1.5 billion more than the year before. And even though California property tax increases have been fairly predictable for the last few decades, all that may be about to change thanks to the split roll property tax initiative that will unfold in 2020.

    Take Control Of Your Unsecured Property Taxes With Technology

    Posted by Eleshia Matheny on Aug 12, 2020 9:30:00 AM

    If you’re wondering about the difference between secured vs. unsecured property taxes, I’d wager a guess you live in California. Why?

Everywhere else, “secured property tax” is simply called real estate tax (real estate is attached to or secured by land); and “unsecured property tax” is called personal property tax (movable property not permanently affixed to a particular location).

However, business personal property tax seems to be a bone of contention as of late, with a number of bills having been introduced in recent years attempting to ease the burden. Passed in 2017, Senate Bill 267 gave small businesses a break, reducing tax liability for companies with business personal property valued at less than $18,000. (Efforts to reduce it further at the state level, however, have failed.) And in late 2018, Jefferson County voted to eliminate its business personal property tax completely in an effort to retain existing businesses and attract new ones.
