Business properties should be rendered to appraisal district

Chief Appraiser Genea Burnaman reminds businesses to render their property with the Franklin County Appraisal District by April 1.

That date is two weeks earlier than in past years. To render is to list the taxable inventory, furniture and fixtures, machinery and equipment and other property a business owned or managed as of Jan. 1. For details about this requirement, see the March 15 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
