ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Value Adjustment Board changes - Pending prior year changes pursuant to a Petition may not be reflected on the TRIM Notice.

Taxing Authority - This column lists all taxing authorities that set millage (tax) rates and levy taxes against the property.

Column 1 - This column lists last year’s taxable values. Taxable values vary because exemptions do not apply to all taxing authorities. Example: The Senior Exemption does not apply to the School Board.

Column 2 - This column lists last year’s tax rates and property taxes levied by each taxing authority. “Mill” in Millage means one-thousandth. To arrive at the taxes listed on the TRIM Notice you divide the tax rate (millage) by 1,000. Example: A Tax (Millage) Rate of 8.35 and Taxable Value of 100,000 is calculated as follows: (8.35 ÷ 1,000) X 100,000 = $835 in Taxes.

Column 3 - This column lists the current taxable value applicable to each taxing authority. Taxable values vary because exemptions do not apply to all taxing authorities. Example: The Senior Exemption does not apply to the School Board.

Column 4 - This column lists tax rates and corresponding taxes by each authority if no budget changes are made for the current year – commonly referred to as the “Rollback Rate”. “Mill” in Millage means one-thousandth. To arrive at the taxes listed on the Notice you divide the tax rate (millage) by 1,000. Example: A Tax (Millage) Rate of 8.35 and Taxable Value of 100,000 is calculated as follows: (8.35 ÷ 1,000) X 100,000 = $835 in Taxes.

Column 5 - This column lists the proposed tax rates and corresponding taxes set by each authority if budget changes are adopted for the current year. “Mill” in Millage means one-thousandth. To arrive at the taxes listed on the Notice you divide the tax rate (millage) by 1,000. Example: A Tax (Millage) Rate of 8.35 and Taxable Value of 100,000 is calculated as follows: (8.35 ÷ 1,000) X 100,000 = $835 in Taxes.

Hearing Information - This section lists the date, time and place that each taxing authority will hold its budget hearing to adopt a final tax rate to be levied against your property. These hearings are open to public participation.

Non-Ad Valorem Assessments - Non-ad valorem (or special assessments) are fees for specific services, such as solid waste collection, street lighting and fire rescue. The amount you pay is not based on the value of your property. This section shows the authority collecting the fee, purpose of assessment, units and rate.

Value Information - This section details last year’s and the current year’s market and assessed values. Because the 10% Non-Homestead cap does not apply to the School Board, assessed values are separated between School Board and non-School Board. See assessment reduction section for details.

Assessment Reduction - Benefits that result in a reduction in the assessed value, such as the Save Our Homes cap and Agricultural Classification are listed in this section for last year and current year.

Exemptions - This section lists the exemptions deducted from your property’s value for last year and the current year. To find out more about exemptions, please contact the Office of the Property Appraiser at 786-331-5321.

How to Contact the Office of the Property Appraiser - This section lists the locations and hours of operation where you may discuss values and exemption concerns with Office staff. You may also file an appeal with the Value Adjustment Board (VAB) by the deadline listed on the TRIM Notice. Contact the VAB directly at 305-375-5641.
