WHO MAY FILE. An organization that owns real or tangible personal property, except licensed motor vehicles, and is seeking
continuation of a property tax exemption must file this Statement of Reaffirmation of Tax Exemption, Form 451A, if:
The property is owned by and used exclusively for agricultural and horticultural societies; or
The property is:
Owned by educational, religious, or charitable organizations, or any organization for the exclusive benefit of any
educational, religious, or charitable;
Used exclusively for educational, religious, or charitable;
Not owned or used for financial gain or profit to either the owner or user;
Not used for the sale of alcoholic beverages for more than 20 hours per week; AND
Not owned or used by an organization which discriminates in membership or employment based on race, color, or
An organization must file a Form 451 if new property is acquired or if the property is converted to exempt use.
WHEN AND WHERE TO FILE. The Form 451A must be filed on or before December 31 prior to each intervening year, those years
not evenly divisible by four, with the county assessor of the county where the property is subject to tax.
Late Filings/Waivers. If an organization fails to file a Form 451A on or before December 31, it may file the Form 451A on or
before June 30, with the county assessor, to maintain the tax exempt status of the property. Filing by this date nullifies any previous
action by the county board of equalization denying the exempt status. If a late filing is made, the county assessor must assess a
penalty against the organization in the amount of 10% of the tax that would have been assessed had the statement not been filed or
$100, whichever is less, for each calendar month or fraction thereof for which the filing of the statement missed the December 31
deadline. The penalty may not be waived.
SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS. The completed Form 451A must be retained by the county assessor.
