County tax office explains errant mailing
The Yamhill County Assessment & Tax department distributed a release last week clarifying its intent on recent mailings of property tax statements.
"When property tax statements were mailed, they included an insert titled `2020 Personal Property/Machinery & Equipment Filing.' This insert should not have been included with real property tax statements. It refers only to business personal property accounts. We apologize for the confusion this caused for our citizens."
The statement further explained that for individuals that own businesses, the insert was meant to notify them that no business property return will be sent to them. "Instead, you may file your return electronically through www.eNoticesOnline.com, or submit it in person or by mail to our office," the statement said.
Forms and instructions are also available at www.co.yamhill.or.us/assessor.
