The El Paso County Assessor’s Office has changed the El Paso County DS056 (Regular Business Form) and DS060 (Lessor Business Form) for the 2008 tax year.

The changes are expected to make it easier for business owners to complete and submit the forms.

Taxpayers owning more than $2,500 in total actual value of personal property per county are required to complete and return a DS056 or a DS060 form.

The forms will be mailed to all Business Personal Property owners between the last week of December and the first week of January. They will also be available on the Assessor’s Web site, starting the last week of December. The DS056 and DS060 are due back to the Assessor’s Office on or before April 15, 2008.
