When ownership of property is titled in the name of a corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or the like (“Entity”), the Office of the Assessor of Real Estate requests the owner of record provide supporting documentation verifying the authorized representative has the authority to act on behalf of the Entity. Specifically, applicants must provide supporting documentation and adhere to the following guidelines.
Corporation - applications must be signed by a corporate officer, director or authorized employee.
Limited partnership - applications must be signed by one or more members as required.
Limited liability partnership - applications must be signed by one or more members as required.
Limited liability corporation - applications must be signed by one or more members as required.
Corporate officers, authorized employees and members must also complete an Application to permit authorized representatives to act on their behalf.
Providing completed applications and documentation of officers, partners, members and employees is important to establish that the Office of the Assessor Real Estate is communicating with the actual owner of record or its authorized agent, particularly with respect to commercial properties involving confidential income and expense information.
