Your property tax bill is hitting your mailbox in November. South Florida property appraiser offices mailed out Notices of Proposed Property Taxes in August, informing homeowners about the new value of their property and the tax rates proposed by local governments. Under Florida law, you have the opportunity to appeal the value that property appraisers affix to your home, a key factor in determining how wide you have to stretch your wallet every year. Do you think they are overvaluing your glorious waterfront condo? What about your simple single family home?
Property owners have 25 days following the mailing of the Notice of Proposed Property Taxes — also known as a TRIM Notice — to file a petition with the Value Adjustment Board, an agency of the Clerk of the Courts Office. The deadline to file a timely petition in Miami-Dade is Sept. 17, according to the clerk’s website. The deadline should be shown at the bottom of the TRIM Notice.
