Hays County Chief Appraiser Laura Raven has granted a 30-day extension for business personal property renditions, moving the deadline from April 15 to May 15.

According to Raven, Section 22.01 of the Texas Property Tax Code requires owners of business personal property to render for taxation all personal property used for the production of income. Examples include computers, chairs, desks, business inventory, machinery and vehicles used to produce income.


All businesses owned and managed as of Jan. 1, 2020, must report that property to the Hays Central Appraisal District.

For businesses, not filing, filing late or filing incomplete brings a 10% penalty, according to a release from the county. To file, visit www.hayscad.com for online forms.

The Hays County Appraisal District building is closed to public access until further notice. Send questions to [email protected]. There is a drop box located at the front of the building at 21001 N. I-35, Kyle.
