Real Estate Tax Payments

As a result of our continuing efforts to safeguard customers and employees, commencing Monday, July 20, the Tax Collector’s Public Service Office, located at 200 NW 2nd Avenue, Miami, Florida 33128, will be open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and will be closed Fridays until further notice.

As the result of COVID-19, and to safeguard our employees and customers, we are strongly recommending that you mail in your payment (for 2019 and prior) instead of visiting our Public Service Office to conduct any Tax Collector business transactions including paying Real Estate Taxes, Tangible Personal Property Taxes and Local Business Taxes. Please continue to follow guidelines issued by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and practice social distancing in public areas.

The annual tax certificate sale for 2019 was held on June 15, 2020. Amounts reflected are amounts due after the tax certificate sale. The online payment button has been disabled. You may mail your payment or visit our Public Service Office. Please call 305-270-4916 for information.

If paying delinquent real estate taxes (2019 and prior) by mail, acceptable forms of payment are cashier's check, certified funds or money order. No cash accepted. Make your payment payable to Miami Dade Tax Collector. Include your property's folio number on the cashier's check, certified funds or money order. No postmarks accepted.

Real estate property taxes are collected annually and can be paid online, by mail or in person. Also known as ad valorem taxes, real estate property taxes are based on the assessed value of a property's land, buildings and improvements, determined by the Property Appraiser as of Jan. 1.

At the end of the certified tax roll, the Property Appraiser delivers the certified tax roll to the Tax Collector, who mails tax notices to the last owner of the property to collect the money owed.

The real estate property tax notice also includes non-ad valorem assessments levied against the property for services such as solid waste, fire rescue, libraries and other special assessments.

County and municipal governments, as well as local taxing authorities (such as the School Board and South Florida Water Management District, Children's Trust), determine tax rates (also known as millage rates). The rate is multiplied against the assessed value of the property, minus exemptions, to determine the amount of taxes due.

Tax notices are mailed on or before Nov. 1. If you don't receive your tax notice in November, call the Tax Collector's office to request a duplicate. Taxes become delinquent on April 1 and additional interest and fees will be added to the bill.

According to Florida Statute 197.122, all property owners are held to know that taxes are due and payable annually. They are charged with the duty of ascertaining the amount of current and delinquent taxes due. If a taxpayer does not receive a tax notice in November, it is the taxpayer's responsibility to contact the Tax Collector's Office to request a duplicate tax notice.

The Miami Dade County Tax Collector's Office now offers property owners the convenience of receiving their 2020 Tax Bill electronically. You will also continue to receive your annual tax notice on or before Nov. 1. Sign up to receive your tax bill electronically.
