Buyer
Beware

When buying real estate property, do not assume property taxes will remain the same. A change in ownership may reset the assessed value of the property 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.

The Homestead Exemption saves property owners thousands of dollars each year. Do not jeopardize your Homestead by renting your property.

Before buying real estate property, be aware that non-ad valorem assessments may have a significant impact on your property tax bill.

Physical Inspections

State law requires the Property Appraiser's Office to value every property annually. Periodically, field staff from our office will visit your property to conduct a physical inspection. In most cases inspections are limited to the exterior of the property.

Inspections can result from, but are not limited to the following:

  • Sale of the property.
  • Damage (i.e. hurricane, flood, etc.).
  • Permits (new construction or demolition).
  • 5 year inspection cycle.
  • The owner's request.

Your cooperation as a property owner is important to us. If we are denied access, we may be forced to come to a conclusion of value which is based on estimates rather than on more precise information. By granting access to our staff, you can assist us in ensuring that our records accurately reflect the condition of your property.

In the event our staff cannot confirm the condition of the property, a letter will be left at your door or mailed to you indicating the reason for our visit, with a contact number to arrange a follow-up inspection at a time which is mutually convenient.

It is important to note that our inspection staff will arrive at your property in a marked Miami-Dade County vehicle, that they will introduce themselves, and that they will be wearing their official Miami-Dade County photo ID. They will notify the owner or resident of the property as to the purpose of their visit. We try to keep the inspections as brief as possible.

It is the goal of the Office of the Property Appraiser to uphold the highest professional standards and to conduct every inspection with courtesy and respect.
