If you’re a homeowner in Florida, you should have recently received your proposed property tax notice. There are three important things you must know about this document.
First, it’s not a bill—so don’t pay it.
Second, while you should review the entire document carefully, the two most important figures are the “just market value” and the “assessed value.” These figures do not necessarily reflect what your home would actually sell for in today’s market; rather, they are included for tax purposes.
Finally, realize that you do have the right to appeal your proposed tax rate. If you feel your home has been given an erroneously high value, you have the opportunity to protest your proposed property taxes until September 13. Our team would be happy to help you with the appeal process. You can learn more about submitting such an appeal in your specific county here:
