The Appraiser’s Office will mail approximately 23,000 rendition forms to Johnson County property owners, businesses and oil and gas accounts on Dec. 31. Rendition forms are used to value taxable personal property.

Examples of commercial personal property that must be reported include manufacturing equipment, computers, telephone systems, copy machines, shelving and racks, and plant machinery. Examples of individual personal property include recreational vehicles, boats, motors, trailers, heavy trucks, mobile homes, off-road vehicles, four-wheelers and aircraft.
