Property Tax Transactions
Real Estate Taxes
Real property taxes are ad valorem assessments on parcels of land, buildings and improvements to land and buildings within Miami-Dade County. The real property tax notice also includes non-ad valorem assessments levied against the property. Non-ad valorem assessments are fees for services such as Solid Waste, Fire, Lighting, Guard and other special assessments.
Paying Real Estate Taxes
Real Estate Taxes can be payed online, by mail or in person. Information about partial, deferred and installment payments is available.
There are two types of Ad Valorem taxes collected by the Miami-Dade County Tax Collector's Office - real estate property taxes and tangible personal property taxes.
Real estate property taxes are ad valorem taxes assessed according to the value of land, buildings and improvements to the land to include single family, multi-family, residential, condominium, cooperatives, townhouses, time share developments and mobile homes. Real estate property taxes also include taxes based on the assessed value for vacant land, residential land, commercial land or agricultural land.
Tangible personal property taxes are ad valorem taxes assessed according to the value of the assets used in a business to derive income such as equipment, fixtures, leased equipment or furniture and appliances used in a rental property or any attachment made to a mobile home or manufactured in a rental park located in businesses and rental property.
Tax Paying Agents
Please familiarize yourself with the 2011 Escrow Tax Procedures Manual and adhere to established deadlines and requirements. Non-compliance will affect your payment discount.
The Tax Collector's Office discourages the submission of hardcopy bills for payments in excess of $50,000. Payments submitted by TPA's in subsequent months must comply with the mass payment guidelines. Therefore, any listings or hard copy bills submitted to our office will not be processed and may result in the loss of the maximum discount.
Tax Certificate Sales
Beginning on or before June 1, the Tax Collector is required by law to hold a Tax Certificate Sale. The tax certificate represents a lien on unpaid real estate properties. Interest accrues on the tax certificate from June 1 until the taxes are paid. The amount of the certificate is the sum of the unpaid real estate tax and the non-ad valorem assessments, penalties, advertising costs and fees.Back to Top Page Last Edited: Thu Mar 29, 2012 11:08:25 AM
