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.

Tangible Personal Property (TPP)

Tangible Personal Property (TPP) consists of all goods, chattels and other articles of value capable of manual possession, whose chief value is intrinsic to the article itself. Inventory for sale and household goods held for comfort are expressly excluded from this definition.  Property owners are required to submit a TPP Tax Return on an annual basis listing these assets, if not specifically “Waived” by this Office or the value of the property exceeds $25,000.  The costs listed on the return are utilized in the valuation of the property.

Tangible Personal Property Tax Return Form (DR-405)  must be filed by April 1, or the first business day after should the due date fall on a weekend or holiday.  You may request an extension for filing the Return.  Penalties for delinquency, failure to file and for omitted property may be applicable. Returns filed after the due date, or extended due date, will assess a penalty of total taxes levied at a rate of 5% for each month after April 1 to a maximum of 25%.  
For example:

  • Returns filed (or postmarked) after due date through April 30 will receive a 5% penalty
  • Returns filed (or postmarked) May 1 through May 31 will receive a 10% penalty
  • Returns filed (or postmarked) June 1 through June 30 will receive a 15% penalty
  • Returns filed (or postmarked) July 1 through July 31 will receive a 20% penalty
  • Returns filed (or postmarked) August 1 and after will receive a 25% penalty

TRIM Notices are mailed out no later than August 24 indicating the valuation of the property. There is a 25 day period whereby you may contest the valuation of your property with our Office.  After the deadline on the notice, property owners cannot contest value unless a Value Adjustment Board (VAB) petition was timely filed and a hearing is pending before the VAB.

Returns may be submitted or any inquiries may be directed to our Office in the South Dade Government Center.
Please follow the detailed instructions included in the TPP Tax Return Form regarding the required information to file a compliant TPP Tax Return Form.
The tax bill is mailed to the taxpayer, usually by November. Any questions related to collection of taxes for TPP should be referred to the Tax Collector's Office.
