Value Adjustment Board Petitions Payment Requirement expired March 31

Value Adjustment Board Petitions Payment Requirement - the deadline to submit 2020 VAB minimum payment expired on March 31, 2021. 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.

Property owners who file a 2020 petition challenging the assessment of their property before the Value Adjustment Board (VAB) were required to 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 resulted in the denial of the property owner's VAB petition. The adjustment was reversed and the taxes became 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.
