Real vs. Personal Analysis
Counties tax both real estate and personal property. They are not allowed to tax the same item or building or parcel as both real estate AND personal property. However this occurs sometimes due to reporting requirements that rely on the taxpayer, and the separation of the two departments at the county level. Reviewing how a client’s assets are being taxed can often lead to discovering that they are being taxed twice on the same asset, once as real estate and then again as personal property.
