The Property Appraiser follows an annual calendar of events established by Florida Law. The following are key dates in the annual process of preparing the Property Value Roll:
January 1 - Assessments are based on the status of the property on this date each year. This is also the effective date for establishing the validity of exemptions and agricultural classification applications.
March 1 - This is the deadline for filing Homestead Exemption and Agricultural Classification for the current tax year.
April 1 - This is the deadline for filing Tangible Personal Property returns with the Property Appraiser's Office.
On or about July 1 - This is the date when notices of denied exemptions and agricultural classifications are mailed.
On or about July 31 - (or 30 days following the mailing of denial notices). This is the deadline for filing appeal petitions to the Value Adjustment Board on denied exemptions and agricultural classifications.
Mid August - The time period within which the Property Appraiser, on behalf of all Taxing Authorities, mails "Notice of Proposed Property Taxes" (or TRIM - Truth in Millage Notices) to all property owners. This Notice includes the market and assessed value of the owner's property for the current and prior year. The Notice also includes the proposed taxes by district with a date, time, and place that each taxing district will hold a public meeting on the subject. The Notice also announces the deadline for petitioning the Value Adjustment Board if your disagreement concerning value cannot be resolved with the Property Appraiser's office.
On or about November 1 - the mailing date when the Tax Collector mails tax bills to property owners.
