Maintenance Alert: Several applications in the Property Appraiser's Online Tools may be unavailable due to required maintenance starting at 7 p.m. on Friday, January 27. All applications should be available on Monday, January 30.


When buying real estate property, do not assume property taxes will remain the same. A change in ownership may reset the assessed value of the property to full market value, which could result in higher property taxes. Please use our Tax Estimator to approximate your new property taxes.

The 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.

The Homestead Exemption saves property owners thousands of dollars each year. Do not jeopardize your Homestead by renting your property.

Before buying real estate property, be aware that non-ad valorem assessments may have a significant impact on your property tax bill.

Applying for an Agricultural Classification

Agriculture Division Office

Agricultural Division Office
South Dade Government Center
10710 SW 211
Suite # 207 - 2nd floor
Cutler Ridge, Florida 33189-2819


If you have a Bonafide Commercial Agricultural Use you must fill out an Agriculture Application with the Property Appraisers Office Agriculture's Section to apply for Agricultural Classification.

As defined in Florida Statute 193.461 (3) (b), "only lands which are used are used primarily for bona fide agricultural purposes shall be Classified Agriculture". "Bona Fide agricultural purposes" means good faith commercial agricultural use of the land.

Note: Agricultural Exemption Renewal is automatic if there are no changes from previous year. New application must be filled out if there are any changes such as: Title, ownership, use or increasing the current use.

The most common reasons for removing the Agricultural Classification are:

  • the property's usage changed from agricultural
  • the property had a change of ownership who failed to timely apply for Agricultural Classification for the year following.

It is important to notify the Property Appraiser Department of any changes in use so we may adjust your classification. The use must be in place by January 1st and financial documentation must also be submitted pertaining to its use.

You can fill out an application in person at either Property Appraisal Department location:

This is a time sensitive document that must be date stamped for deadline purposes.

  • The deadline for applications is March 1st of each year.
  • You can apply late, after March 1st and before the deadline on the current years TRIM notice.
  • You must file a late application with our office. Also, you must file a Late Petition with the Value Adjustment Board at a cost of $15 per folio.


  • The physical Agricultural use of the property must be in place as of January 1st of the year applied. The Financial Documentation that must be submitted must also reflect the January 1st use.
  • Financial documents that link to your Agricultural Business use are needed when applying.
  • If you don't have all of the documentation PDF needed at the time you file, you must submit any necessary documents as soon as possible. Incomplete applications cannot be granted and will result in the denial of the classification.
