Buyer
Beware

When buying real estate property, you should not assume that property taxes will remain the same. Whenever there is a change in ownership, the assessed value of the property may reset to full market value, which could result in higher property taxes. Please use our Tax Estimator to approximate your new property taxes.

The Property Appraiser does not send tax bills and does not set or collect taxes. Please visit the Tax Collector's website directly for additional information.

2018 Legislative Summary

The Florida Legislature passed several property tax benefits in 2018. This summary provides a comprehensive review of the new benefits, and also includes information on what property owners can expect to see on the ballot this upcoming November.

Questions about the New Third Homestead Exemption benefit?

In 2017, the Florida Legislature adopted a Constitutional Amendment titled the House Joint Resolution (HJR 7105), which would increase the Homestead Exemption by $25,000 for a total exemption amount up to $75,000. If approved by voters in November 2018, the increase to your Homestead  Exemption will be reflected on your 2019 property taxes.

To assess if you may benefit from this amendment, please visit the Property Appraiser’s New Third Homestead Exemption Estimator Calculator.

Did You Miss The March 1st Deadline To Apply For Homestead Exemption?

Property Appraiser Pedro J. Garcia would like to let you know that it is not too late. Our office will continue to accept exemption applications. Be sure to complete the "Extenuating Circumstances" form in order for your application to be processed.

Watch out for false quitclaim deeds

There are new reports that scammers are filing fake quitclaim deeds. Unfortunately, these schemes have increased over the past few years. The thieves are preying on property owners and transferring the title to themselves and/or companies, which in turn sell the property, leaving the rightful property owner homeless. Stay vigilant and monitor the Property Search frequently for any changes in ownership.

If you think you have been a victim of deed fraud, visit the Miami-Dade Clerk of Courts website for more information.  

Beware of rental scams

A recent report revealed that the Miami-Dade Police Economic Crimes Bureau has been investigating a large amount of "squatter brokers." These scammers are posing as property owners or managers and renting a property they have no legal rights over. Then renters/lessees will get caught up in this fraudulent scheme.

Remember to protect yourself and your money from thieves. Check our Property Search to confirm the listed owner of a property.
