Miami-Dade County 2012 TRIM notices are available

You may not find your Dade County TRIM notice for 2012 on-line.  This is the value that the County feels your property is valued at.  Please keep in mind, the County uses mass appraisals.  They do not (or can not) visit each property to give an accurate appraisal.  That is why we at The Property Tax Appeal Group exist.  We petition on your behalf and present evidence showing why your property has been over assessed.

As Broker's, Building Contractor's, Property Owners (Residential and Commercial), and a background of appealing Property taxes for over 30 years, we know what to present inorder to get you the reduction you deserve. 

Please follow these instructions to view your 2012 TRIM notice:

 1. Obtain your folio #.  Copy it so you can paste it later.

2. Proced to the TRIM notice site, make sure 2012 is selected nad paste your folio in:

The file has now been downloaded and you may view the file on your computer. 

You can click 2012 Real Estate for the TRIM Guide to view how to read your notice.

Miami-Dade 2012 Values are available on-line

If you own Property in Miami-Dade, you can now view your 2012 Assessment.  TRIM notice's are not yet available. 

If you are interested, you may follow this link. Regretfully, even though they site was just rebuilt, they used a flash based platform so i-phone and i-pads can not navigate the site.  Just click new search, type in your name or address.  You can then view an aerial view, information about the property and your 2011 & 2012 assessment. 

If this is your primary residence, make sure to click "exemption information."  This will let you know if you are receiving your Homestead, Senior, Veteran Disability, Civilian Disability, or Widow(er) exemption.  If you do not see it, go to Homestead Exemption to get everything you need.  (If you are not entitled to your exemption, make sure to remove it or you may be liable up to 10 years back taxes AND 15% interest and more.)

Remember, even if your assessment has gone down, you may still be improperly assessed.  Your property may have dropped 2% while your neighbor dropped 15%.  Please contact us at
