Real Estate Tax Payments
As a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and to safeguard our employees and customers, we are strongly encouraging our tax payers and customers to conduct any Tax Collector business transactions including paying Real Estate Property Taxes, Tangible Personal Property Taxes, Local Business Taxes, Auto Tag registrations "Renew Express" and Auto Tag registrations "GoRenew," online, instead of visiting our Public Service Office in person.
The date for citizens and businesses to pay property taxes in all Florida counties is extended from March 31 to April 15, 2020. Payments must be submitted electronically or postmarked by April 15.
Real estate property taxes are collected annually and can be paid online, by mail or in person. Also known as ad valorem taxes, real estate property taxes are based on the assessed value of a property's land, buildings and improvements, determined by the Property Appraiser as of Jan. 1.
At the end of the certified tax roll, the Property Appraiser delivers the certified tax roll to the Tax Collector, who mails tax notices to the last owner of the property to collect the money owed.
The real estate property tax notice also includes non-ad valorem assessments levied against the property for services such as solid waste, fire rescue, libraries and other special assessments.
County and municipal governments, as well as local taxing authorities (such as the School Board and South Florida Water Management District, Children's Trust), determine tax rates (also known as millage rates). The rate is multiplied against the assessed value of the property, minus exemptions, to determine the amount of taxes due.
Tax notices are mailed on or before Nov. 1. Property tax payments have been extended to April 15. If you don't receive your tax notice in November, call the Tax Collector's office to request a duplicate. Taxes become delinquent on April 1 and additional interest and fees will be added to the bill.
According to Florida Statute 197.122, all property owners are held to know that taxes are due and payable annually. They are charged with the duty of ascertaining the amount of current and delinquent taxes due. If a taxpayer does not receive a tax notice in November, it is the taxpayer's responsibility to contact the Tax Collector's Office to request a duplicate tax notice.
