Filing Deadlines

According to The General Laws of Rhode Island, taxable personal property must be declared to the Assessor between December 31 and January 31 of any given year. If a taxpayer is unable to make such a declaration within the prescribed time, he may submit written notice prior to January 31 of intention to submit a declaration by March 15.

Failure to file within the prescribed time may eliminate the right to appeal. If the business no longer exists on the assessment date, December 31, simply indicate on the form indicating the date the business ceased to exist and manner in which the assets were disposed. Then sign and date the form and mail it to the Assessor's Office.
