Property taxes may be affected with change in ownership. 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.

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.

Additionally, before buying real estate property in Miami-Dade County, please learn how PACE Loans, Community Development Districts, Special Taxing Districts and Renting Your Homestead Property affect your property taxes.

Assessment Districts

Assessment Districts (formerly known as Special Taxing Districts) can be created by property owners in a defined area who vote to levy a tax in support of public improvements to the area. Assessment Districts may be created for lighting, sewers or other infrastructure improvements.

Community Development Districts

A Community Development District (CDD) can be defined as a special taxing district that may levy taxes and assessments and issues bonds.

These taxes and assessments are added to the tax bill for the payment of the infrastructure.

This infrastructure includes the design, construction, acquisition and maintenance of certain roadway improvements, streetlights, water distribution systems, sewer facilities, storm water management, and landscape buffers.

  • The Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners approves each CDD.
  • The developer notifies each purchaser of this cost before the completion of the sale his/her property.
  • The developer remains in control of the CDD in its early years
  • Ordinarily, a CDD will remain in existence indefinitely unless it is merged with another district, is dissolved, or if the services it performs are transferred to a general-purpose unit of local government.

For more information, check for the name of the CDD that is shown on the bottom of the Notice of Proposed Taxes.
