Deadline For San Rafael Business Property Statements Extended

San Rafael, CA – The past two months have seen unprecedented disruption to daily routines, jobs, and operations of local government. Although many of its employees are working remotely, the Marin County Assessor-Recorder-County Clerk (ARCC) remains open during the COVID-19 pandemic and is determined to complete its constitutional responsibility.

The staffs of each ARCC division are ready to assist taxpayers and residents during this difficult time, even more since California Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order that extended the filing deadline for business property statements without penalty until May 31. Since the new deadline falls on a Sunday, the deadline is now officially Monday, June 1, for forms to be delivered to the Marin County Assessor’s Office. Businesses had faced a 10% penalty if they were unable to file by the initial May 7 deadline.

“We understand many businesses in all sectors are facing difficult decisions as we shelter in place,” said Shelly Scott, the Assessor, Recorder and County Clerk. “Since every little bit counts, we’d like to remind everyone that many of our services are available through our website, by mail, and by phone.”

California business property taxpayers are required to report their taxable business personal property with a combined value of $100,000 or more to assessors on an annual basis. Law requires that a 1% tax be applied to all business property valued (in total) of $5,000 or more.

Business personal property includes business equipment, supplies, as well as tangible assets such as printers, copiers, furniture, manufacturing and lab and restaurant equipment – everything but the land and the building. If a business has already filed, it stills has until May 31 to file amendments.

If you need assistance in preparing the statement, the Assessor’s Office can offer some tips. Questions can also be addressed by telephone at 415-473-7208 or email AssrPersProp@marincounty.Org with questions. The offices may be closed to the public, but the Assessor’s Office staff remain ready to help.

Visit the Assessor’s Office website for more information on filing requirements and resources. The office staff remains ready to assist taxpayers and answer questions. Public counters for all three divisions are closed during the pandemic, but residents may call the following numbers for staff assistance:

Bundesliga Soccer To Resume On May 16 In Empty Stadiums Across Germany

BERLIN — The Bundesliga soccer season will resume on May 16 in empty stadiums, picking up right where it left off two months ago amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Everyone has to be clear. We’re playing on probation,” German soccer league managing director Christian Seifert said. “I expect everyone to live up to this responsibility. Our concept is designed to catch infections early.”

Seifert said the return of soccer was because of the success the country’s leaders and health officials have had in response to the outbreak.

Germany has had a high number of COVID-19 infections — nearly 170,000 by Thursday, according to Johns Hopkins University — with about 7,000 deaths, a lower number compared to elsewhere.

Even with the NHL season suspended, we’ll send you Flyers analysis every Tuesday.

The country’s relative success in combating the virus has been attributed to early testing, a robust health service and strict lockdown measures that are now being loosened.

“That we’re allowed to play again boils down to German politics for managing this crisis, and the health system in Germany,” Seifert said. “If I were to name the number of tests that I was asked about in teleconferences with other professional leagues, with American professional leagues, with clubs from the NFL, the NHL, Major League Baseball and others, and I tell them how many tests are possible in Germany, they generally check, or there’s silence, because it’s just unimaginable in the situation over there.”

Only about a third of Germany’s massive testing capacity of almost 1 million a week is being currently used, said Lars Schaade, the deputy head of the Robert Koch Institute.

Though the French league has already been canceled, the Bundesliga’s return has given hope to soccer officials in Spain, Italy and England that they may yet also finish their seasons.

“I am confident that Germany will provide a shining example to all of us in how to bring football — with all its excitement, emotion and unpredictability — back into our lives,” UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said.

Seifert said the season will restart with the 26th round of games, including the Ruhr derby between Borussia Dortmund and Schalke on the opening Saturday. That match will test local authorities who hope to keep groups of fans from gathering around the stadium or at bars to watch on television.

Pay-TV broadcaster Sky said it will show some games on the first two weekends for free in Germany.

Seifert, who was speaking in Frankfurt after a video conference with members from each club, warned that everyone involved will need to maintain strict hygiene measures to ensure another suspension will not be necessary.

The Bundesliga was suspended on March 13 with nine rounds remaining. Seifert said the last round is now planned for the weekend of June 27-28. He said the second division will also begin on May 16.

“The decision means economic survival for some clubs,” Seifert said.

Seifert said there have been 10 positive cases of COVID-19 in the first two waves of tests among the 36 professional clubs, with another two positive cases found in a third wave.

It was initially planned that teams would spend two weeks in quarantine before games could resume, but a compromise on shorter training camps in isolation for each team was reached because players have been undergoing regular tests.

Seifert said a decision on whether to temporarily allow five substitutions per match depends on FIFA rules. FIFA made the proposal to help players cope with game congestion but it is still subject to approval from the International Football Association Board, soccer’s law-making body.
