Real Estate Tax Payments
Online payment function (2020 taxes only) will be available until 11:59 p.m. EDT (Eastern Daylight Time), on May 31, 2021.

As the result of COVID-19, and to safeguard our employees and customers, we are strongly recommending that you submit your 2020 tax payment online instead of visiting the Public Service Office to conduct any Tax Collector business transactions, including paying Real Estate taxes, Tangible Personal Property taxes and Local Business taxes.

Value Adjustment Board Petitions Payment Requirement due by March 31
Only full payments can be processed online. If making the minimum payment by mail or in person, payment must be received on or before March 31, 2021.
Property owners who file a petition challenging the assessment of their property before the Value Adjustment Board (VAB) must pay at least 75 percent of the petitioned property's assessed ad valorem taxes (taxes based on the assessed value of the property) and 100 percent of the property's assessed non-ad valorem assessment (which are for services based on the cost allocated to a property, such as solid waste, lighting or library assessments) on or before March 31, 2021. The failure to make this minimum payment by this date will result in the denial of the property owner's VAB petition. The adjustment will be reversed and the taxes will become delinquent.
The VAB will issue the denial for non-payment even if the property owner's petition has been heard by the VAB before March 31, 2021 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.
