Business tangible personal property is any furniture, fixtures, tools, or equipment that is used or available for use in a business. It includes fixed assets, but does not include supplies (such as pens and paper) or real estate. For a more detailed list of applicable assets, see Sections One and Two of the BPP return form.

Note that BPP is not pro-rated.
