Property taxes may be affected with change in ownership. When buying real estate property, you should not assume that property taxes will remain the same. Whenever there is a change in ownership, the assessed value of the property may reset to full market value, which could result in higher property taxes. Please use our Tax Estimator to approximate your new property taxes.

Property Appraiser does not send tax bills and does not set or collect taxes. Please visit the Tax Collector's website directly for additional information.

Additionally, before buying real estate property in Miami-Dade County, please learn how PACE Loans, Community Development Districts, Special Taxing Districts and Renting Your Homestead Property affect your property taxes.

Working Waterfronts

On November 4, 2008, Florida voters approved Amendment 6 creating changes to Section 4 of Article VII of the State Constitution. This Amendment provides for classification and assessment of working waterfront property based on the following qualified uses:

  • Predominantly used for commercial fishing
  • Accessible to the public and used for vessel launches into navigable waters
  • A marina or dry stack open to the public
  • A water-dependent marine manufacturing facility
  • A water-dependent commercial fishing facility
  • A water-dependent marine vessel construction or repair facility and/or support facilities

Prior to the passage of this amendment, working waterfront properties were assessed based on the 'Highest and Best Use' resulting in properties being assessed at values higher than the actual businesses they housed.

The Florida Department of Revenue (DOR), the supervising agency for county property appraisers, has created a suggested Working Waterfront Assessment Application Adobe Acrobat Logo (DOR form DR-482WW). This form must be completed and filed by March 1 with supporting documents such as a Marine Operating Permit (MOP) Adobe Acrobat Logo issued by the Regulatory & Economic Resources to ensure prompt consideration.
