Once the payment has been submitted, Tax Collector's Office cannot reverse or modify an online payment. In cases where a certificate is issued or an account is in Bankruptcy/Litigation, the payment button is disabled, therefore, disallowing the taxpayer to pay taxes.

Credit card payments can be made by Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. A non-refundable convenience fee of 2.21% of the tax amount will be applied to each credit card transaction. In cases where a certificate is issued or an account is in Bankruptcy/Litigation, the payment button is disabled, therefore, disallowing the taxpayer to pay taxes.
VAB Petitioners Required to Pay 75% of Tax Payment by March 31, 2018
Effective July 1, 2011, property owners who file a Value Adjustment Board (VAB) appeal must have paid at least 75% of the assessed Ad Valorem Taxes (taxes based on the assessed value of the property) and all of the Non-Ad Valorem Assessments, which are for services such as Solid Waste and Fire, by March 31, 2018. Property owners who failed to make the minimum 75% payment requirement by March 31, 2018, will result in the denial of their VAB petition.
The VAB will issue this denial for non-payment even if the property owner’s petition has been heard by the VAB before March 31, 2018 and the VAB has agreed to reduce the property’s assessment. In such cases, and pursuant to Florida law, the VAB will cancel its decision reducing the property’s assessment, and the Property Appraiser’s preliminary assessment will be reinstated.Back to Top Page Last Edited: Tue Jul 17, 2018 11:08:22 AM
