This form is used to report all owned and leased real estate, buildings and improvements. Report land, buildings and improvements separately. Report only leased or rented property where the tax liability rests with the lessee.
Selecting the CAB-04T Summary record in the Form Group table will take the user to the Summary of Real Property Index page. The index page is the location where all assets can be viewed, assets can be added, edited and removed. The page also contains the functions to complete your individual filing and launch the available reports.
To add a new asset, select the blue “Add” button at the top left of the table. The user will be taken to the Add Asset page which will allow information to be entered per asset. Note that the required fields are marked with a red asterisk. Once the required data is entered, select the blue next button.

The edit asset-location tab contains the location information that was entered for the asset. The user can edit the information entered, or provide additional information.
The edit asset-contact tab contains the information that was entered for the asset property owner. The user can edit the information entered or provide additional information.
The edit asset-history tab contains the history of submissions and values for the asset. There is no information to edit in this interface.
To delete an asset from the CAB-04T index, select the record in the record table (if not already selected). On the bottom left-hand corner of the edit asset-valuation tab is a red Delete button. Selecting the button will trigger a modal window to confirm the deletion.
