When buying real estate property, do not assume property taxes will remain the same. Any 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.

Appealing to the Value Adjustment Board

VAB Petitions

Mail to:
111 NW 1ST ST STE 1720
MIAMI FL 33128

Property owners who disagree with the property values listed on their Notice of Proposed Property Taxes (or TRIM Notice) have two options:

  1. Call or visit the Property Appraiser's Office to discuss and review values, exemptions and classifications.
  2. File an appeal with the Value Adjustment Board (VAB) and have their case heard before a Special Magistrate.

The VAB is an agency of the Clerk of Courts Office, which is independent of the Property Appraiser's Office. If a petition is filed, the VAB will schedule a hearing at which the property owner will make his/her case for a value adjustment, to a Special Magistrate experienced in property appraisal techniques, and the Property Appraiser's Office will defend its assessment.

The deadline date for filing a VAB petition is shown at the bottom of the TRIM Notice which is mailed to property owners in August.

For details on how to file an appeal petition please visit the Clerk of Courts website at Miami-Dade County - Clerk of Courts or call 305-375-5641.

Prior to filing a VAB petition, however, property owners are encouraged to call or visit the Property Appraiser's Office to discuss their concerns.
