For your convenience, the Assessor’s Office offers access to a free online filing program (E-File) from mid-January until May 7th at 5 p.m. annually. E-Filing is quick and secure, with an immediate confirmation that your filing has been accepted. The E-Filing program replaces the need for a printed submission of the Business Property Statement to be mailed to the Assessor’s Office.
On-Line Business Property Statement Filing offers a convenient and secure option that we encourage you to take advantage of today. You will be guided through the electronic version of your property statement, with help screens available. You will be able to leave and return to your e-file statement for completion or corrections until the earlier of May 7, 2019 at 5:00 pm, or statement submission to the Assessor. After an initial filing, previously submitted information will be carried forward and only updating of information will be necessary.
Important: Proper settings are required to access all the features of the e-filing website. If you experience problems entering data or saving your Business Property Statement, you may need to make changes to your Trusted Sites (PDF).
Placer County also participates in a statewide program for multi-jurisdictional businesses called Standard Data Record (SDR). The SDR system allows filing of Business Property Statements for a multitude of locations in different counties in a single standardized XML data format.
The E-Filing program is not available after May 7th at 5:01 p.m. All statements filed after May 7th at 5 p.m. must be submitted by mail.
The Business Identification Number (BIN) is a unique access code that provides private and secure access to your property statement through the E-File program. A new BIN is issued each year and is included with the Notice and Assessor’s Request to File a Business Property Statement letter sent in January. Because the BIN is unique each year, the BIN you received last year will not work to grant you future access to the E-Filing program. If you require a new BIN, you will need to email the Assessor’s Office.
