REMINDER FROM THE ASSESSOR
BUSINESS PERSONAL PROPERTY RETURNS DUE BY SEPTEMBER 1, 2020

As a business owner in the State of West Virginia, you are subject to ad valorem taxes based on personal property owned by your business July 1, 2020 for the 2021 tax year. West Virginia Code requires that we estimate personal property tax assessments for all businesses that fail to file a return and would be subject to penalties and interest.

If you are a new business and did not receive a return, or have not filed, you should contact our office before SEPTEMBER 1. Forms may also be obtained from our website here: Forms

Our office is open to the public from 9:30-4:00 Monday through Friday for your convenience in answering any questions, or you may call us at 304-624-8514 or 304-624-8517.

Tax Estimator / Oil and Gas Calculator

New features have been added to our website. If you would like to Estimate your Oil and Gas Taxes or Estimate your Taxes you can now do that through the links provided or from the Real Estate Dropdown menu.

Classification and Unrecorded Land Contracts

If a taxpayer does not provide our office with a copy of an Unrecorded Land Contract they will not be eligible for the Class II - Owner Occupied status. The burden of proof for classification falls on the property owner. The Harrison County Assessors office has no record of unrecorded land contracts unless the taxpayer provides this proof. Therefore, we are not in error classifying these properties as Class III or IV.

Our office will no longer exonerate properties that were acquired via an unrecorded land contract that was not provided to our office by the taxpayer. The County Commission can only approve exonerations due to a clerical error. Therefore, exonerations will no longer be submitted for this reason. We will correct classification on only the current and future years at the time that proper documentation is provided by the taxpayer.
