Are there any special requirements for using a fiscal year-end?

If a taxpayer is using a fiscal year-end for federal tax purposes, it must be used for tangible personal property tax reporting. If the taxpayer would happen to not have been in business for a full 12 months immediately preceding the fiscal year-end, property must be listed using a calendar year-end (Dec. 31).
