Miami-Dade County Property Owners to Receive 2021 Notice of Proposed Property Taxes (TRIM Notice) in the Mail

Miami-Dade County, FL – Property Appraiser Pedro J. Garcia has mailed the Notice of Proposed Property Taxes (TRIM Notice) on Monday, August 23, to all property owners. The notice includes property values assessed as of January 1 established by our office, the tax rates proposed by the taxing authorities, the property tax benefits and exemptions, if any, applied to the property, as well as the dates, times, and venues of budget hearings for each of the taxing authorities. This is not a tax bill. Tax bills will be mailed by the Miami-Dade Tax Collector by November.

To better understand the TRIM Notice, the mailing will include “TRIM Guides” that help breakdown the information found on their notice. It will also include a letter from Property Appraiser Garcia advising all property owners to thoroughly review and understand their TRIM Notice with key deadlines. He also encourages property owners who believe their property assessment may be inaccurate to complete an Informal Assessment Review Form where we will be able to address value concerns. 

TRIM Notices can also be found online at Property owners may also use our Tax Comparison application to compare individual property tax information by taxing district.
Property Appraiser Garcia adds, “It is more important than ever for property owners to thoroughly review their TRIM Notices. They should verify they are receiving the property tax benefits they are entitled to and contact us immediately if they believe their assessment is incorrect or if they are not receiving a benefit for which they qualify. I also continue to urge commercial property owners who may have been affected by COVID-19 to contact our office with documentation supporting such claims. This is the time to make adjustments, if warranted, before the tax bills are sent.”

Additionally, his letter includes outreach events where staff will be available to personally assist property owners one-on-one. Events will be held in accordance with Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. If property owners believe their assessment is incorrect, they should bring documents that support an assessment reduction, such as comparable sales, appraisals, photographs of the property and insurance claim paperwork. The dates and locations of the outreach events are below. Any date modifications will be reflected on the Calendar of Events page found on our website at
