Real Estate Tax Payments

As a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and to safeguard our employees and customers, the hours our Public Service Office is open to the public are changing. The new hours of the Public Service Office located on the first floor at 200 NW 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33128 will be from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. beginning Monday, June 29 until further notice.

We are strongly encouraging our tax payers and customers to conduct any Tax Collector business transactions including paying Real Estate Property Taxes using the Pay Your Property Tax Bill button located to the right under Online Options to access the online payment system instead of visiting our Public Service Office in person.

The annual tax certificate sale for 2019 delinquent and prior year property tax accounts is in progress. The online payment button has been disabled. You may mail your payment or visit our public service office. Please call 305-270-4916 for information.

The 2019 real estate taxes became delinquent on April 16, 2020, and additional interest and fees have been applied.

Delinquent taxes require that payment be made by cashier’s check, certified funds, or money order.

If paying delinquent real estate (2019 and prior) acceptable forms of payment are: cashier’s check, certified funds, money order, or cash. No personal checks accepted.

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 were 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 16 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.
