Prepayment of Property Taxes for 2018 in the State of Florida
A taxpayer may not prepay 2018 taxes in 2017 because the 2018 tax roll is not open for collection. Generally, tax rolls are open for collection starting on November 1 of each year. The 2018 property tax rolls are not open for collection and will not be until at least November 1, 2018. Under Section 197.333, Florida Statutes, taxes are due and payable on November 1 of each year at the earliest; if taxes are not payable until November 1 of each year, then it follows that the earliest date that 2018 taxes may be paid is November 1, 2018. Under Rule 12D-13.022(5) of the Florida Administrative Code, a taxpayer may pay installments before their due dates if the current year’s tax roll is open for collection. The 2018 tax roll is not open for collection; therefore, a taxpayer may not prepay 2018 tax payment installments in 2017.
The opening of the 2017 tax roll will be advertised on November 8 in local newspapers in English, Spanish, and Creole for collection from November 14 through March 31, 2018.

VAB Petitioners Required to Pay 75% of Tax Payment on or before March 31, 2018
Property owners who file a petition challenging the assessment of their property before the Value Adjustment Board (VAB) must pay, on or before March 31, 2018, at least 75% of the petitioned property’s assessed Ad Valorem Taxes (taxes based on the assessed value of the property) and 100% of the property’s assessed Non-Ad Valorem Assessments (which are for services based on the cost allocated to a property, such as solid waste, lighting, or library assessments). The failure to make this minimum payment, on or before March 31, 2018, will result in the denial of the property owner’s 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.
