If you are a first time filer, the declaration may seem complicated and confusing. It’s made to accommodate many different types of property - please read the instructions carefully:
It is recommended to keep a list of your assets including costs and dates of purchase. Update it periodically with new acquisitions and disposals. If you have your accountant prepare your declaration send them a copy of your updated assets list.

File the original declaration with the Assessor’s Office as soon as possible before November 1, be sure to sign and date your return.
Keep a copy for your records and for referral when filing subsequent declarations.
