VAB Petitioners Required to Pay 75% of Tax Payment on or before March 31, 2017
Property owners who file a petition challenging the assessment of their property before the Value Adjustment Board (VAB) must pay, on or before March 31, 2017, at least 75% of the petitioned property’s assessed Ad Valorem Taxes (taxes based on the assessed value of the property) and 100% of the property’s assessed Non-Ad Valorem Assessments (which are for services based on the cost allocated to a property, such as solid waste, lighting, or library assessments). The failure to make this minimum payment, on or before March 31, 2017, will result in the denial of the property owner’s VAB petition.
The VAB will issue this denial for non-payment even if the property owner’s petition has been heard by the VAB before March 31, 2017 and the VAB has agreed to reduce the property’s assessment. In such cases, and pursuant to Florida law, the VAB will cancel its decision reducing the property’s assessment, and the Property Appraiser’s preliminary assessment will be reinstated.
2015 Delinquent Taxes
Taxes become delinquent on April 1, 2016. Delinquent taxes must be received in our office by May 31, 2016. Postmarks will not be honored for delinquent taxes. Acceptable Forms of Payment for Delinquent Taxes: Cashier's Check, Money Order, Cash Payments (Accepted in Public Service Office), e-checking, and credit card (Accepted only online).
