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.

Notice of Proposed Property Taxes (TRIM)

Online Resources


House of money

TRIM Notices are sent to all property owners by August 24. The Notices include property values, exemption benefits, proposed taxes and budget hearing information.

The Office of the Property Appraiser urges you to read your TRIM Notice carefully (TRIM Notices are mailed at the end of August). Although the Notice states, “This is not a bill”, it reflects what your property taxes are likely to be on your November property tax bill.

The Notice contains very important information pertaining to your property taxes in the following categories:

Taxing Authorities

  • Ad Valorem Taxes -- Proposed taxes based on the value of your property
  • Non Ad Valorem Taxes -- Proposed fees for services such as garbage, fire, and lighting

Please note that the Property Appraiser's does not set tax rates nor does it collect taxes. Questions concerning taxes should be directed to the Taxing Authority listed on your Notice.

Property Appraiser

  • Property Values -- Value of the property as of January 1
  • Exemptions & Other Benefits -- All exemptions, classifications, and assessment reductions applied to the property

For all questions pertaining to the values and exemptions listed in your Notice, please call the Property Appraiser’s Office at 305-375-4712. We are available to help you and address any questions and concerns about the values and exemptions in the Notice.

Additional assistance is available through a variety of online TRIM resources.

Public Hearings

The TRIM Notice lists the various taxing authorities that collect property taxes and their respective budget hearing dates. In addition to the County, there are several other agencies that levy taxes against your property. These include municipal governments, the School Board, South Florida Water Management District, Children's Trust, Florida Inland Navigational District and the Everglades Project.

Before taxing authorities can levy taxes against your property they are required to hold public budget hearings. The dates, times, and locations for all budget hearings are listed on the Notice and you are encouraged to participate in each of the hearings.

Appealing Your Assessment

Property owners are encouraged to complete an Assessment Review Form or schedule an appointment with the Property Appraiser's Office to discuss concerns about values and/or exemptions, in one-on-one conferences with evaluators. If the concerns are not resolved, the property owners have 25 days to file a petition with the Value Adjustment Board.
