Property Tax FAQs

Who is the legal owner of my leased equipment, and who pays business personal property taxes on it?

Marlin, as the owner of the leased equipment, is required to report all leased equipment, even if the equipment is leased by lessees in the government, church or non-profit sectors. Since Marlin is not a tax-exempt entity and is the owner of the equipment, the lessee’s tax exemption does not pass to Marlin. The tax assessors of each individual jurisdiction make the determination as to whether or not to assess taxes on the assets.
