You need to have your 2011 Jackson County Personal Property Declaration Form. This will provide you with your account number and your PIN, both of which are needed to file online.
This process is very similar to what has been required of residents in years past, but is simpler and faster. You should be done in a matter of minutes. Instead of filling out and mailing in the form, you may fill out the form online, and submit it with a few simple keystrokes and mouse clicks. There is a HELP screen available on each page to answer any questions that may come up during the process.
The County is requesting that you declare the proper Jackson County street address of the owner of this property, even though it may be the same as the mailing address. Thank you for your cooperation.
You may use this online system – even if you wish to make no changes to your declaration. Also please note that once you fill out the form and click "Submit", you will not be allowed to make further changes online. Should you need to make further changes to your personal property account later, you will need to visit a courthouse location, and our staff will assist you. The information you have declared through this process is for the 2011 tax year. It will only be available on Tax Search after May 31, 2011.
