VAB Petitioners Required to Pay 75% of Tax Payment by March 31, 2019
Property owners who file a petition challenging the assessment of their property before the Value Adjustment Board (VAB) must have paid at least 75% of the assessed Ad Valorem Taxes (taxes based on the assessed value of the property) and all of the Non-Ad Valorem Assessments, which are for services such as Solid Waste and Fire, by March 31, 2019. Property owners who failed to make the minimum 75% payment requirement by March 31, 2019, will result in the denial of their VAB petition.
The VAB will issue this denial for non-payment even if the property owner’s petition has been heard by the VAB before March 31, 2019 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.
