Proposed Property Tax Notices Mailed to Property Owners
The 2014 Notices of Proposed Property Taxes
, also called the “Truth in Millage” (TRIM) Notices, were mailed to property owners on Thursday, August 21. The notice is not a bill, but an estimate of your taxes based on tax rates proposed by the taxing authorities, your property values and exemptions. The notice outlines your property's just (market), assessed and taxable values and any exemptions you may have as of January 1, 2014.
If you disagree with your market value or have a question regarding your notice, please contact us
for an informal review. If you would like to formally protest your value and have a hearing before a neutral Special Magistrate, per state law, you have 25 days from the mailing of the notices to file a formal petition with the Value Adjustment Board (VAB)
. Petition forms must be received by the VAB (NOT postmarked) by 5:00 p.m. on September 15, 2014
. For more information or online petition forms, please contact the Value Adjustment Board
or visit the Property Appraiser’s Online Forms
Information regarding the Notices of Proposed Property Taxes (TRIM Notices) can be found on our Truth in Millage (TRIM)
“Truth in Millage” page, and your property’s 2014 proposed values are also available online. To access your property’s TRIM information online, please use our Property Search
