The Tax Collector’s Office will accept escrow payments to allow taxpayers to obtain a release of lis pendens from the Office of the Property Appraiser. Effective immediately, the Tax Collector's Office will allow taxpayers to return the uncashed VAB refund checks to release the lis pendens and stop the accrual of interest. Taxpayers who have already cashed the VAB refund check may request a payoff amount by sending an email to the Tax Collector Paralegal Unit at [email protected].
The real estate property tax notice also includes non-ad valorem assessments levied against the property for services such as solid waste, fire rescue, libraries and other special assessments.
County and municipal governments, as well as local taxing authorities (such as the School Board and South Florida Water Management District, Children's Trust), determine tax rates (also known as millage rates). The rate is multiplied against the assessed value of the property, minus exemptions, to determine the amount of taxes due.
Real estate property taxes are collected annually and may be paid online (only 2021 taxes) until May 31, 2022. If payment is brought in person the payment must be received by May 31, 2022. Also known as ad valorem taxes, real estate property taxes are based on the assessed value of a property's land, buildings and improvements, determined by the Property Appraiser as of Jan. 1.
At the end of the certified tax roll, the Property Appraiser delivers the certified tax roll to the Tax Collector, who mails tax notices to the last owner of the property to collect the money owed.
Tax notices are mailed on or before Nov. 1. If you don't receive your tax notice in November, call the Tax Collector's office to request a duplicate. Taxes become delinquent on April 1 and additional interest and fees will be added to the bill.
According to Florida Statute 197.122, all property owners are held to know that taxes are due and payable annually. They are charged with the duty of ascertaining the amount of current and delinquent taxes due. If a taxpayer does not receive a tax notice in November, it is the taxpayer's responsibility to contact the Tax Collector's Office to request a duplicate tax notice.
Under Florida law:
- A discount period may not be extended due to a tax bill being returned as undeliverable electronically or by postal mail (F.S.197.322)
- Email addresses are public records. If you register for electronic billing your email address may be subject to public record requests
Value Adjustment Board Petitions Payment Requirement due by March 31
Only full payments may be processed online. If you are making the minimum 75 percent payment of the 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, 2022. This partial payment can be made by mail or in person. 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, 2022, 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.
