Tax Bills are in the Mail

By now you should have received your "Notice of ad valorem taxes and non-ad valorem assessments"  This should not be confused with the TRIM notice you previously received.  This is the bill.

While you should confirm it is for the proper address that you own it will show you where all your taxes will be going.  The most important thing this year is due to the hurricane, you may have received an extension to pay your taxes early and receive the largest discount. 

Your property tax payment is officially due by March 31, 2018.  In order to get funds in faster the counties offer four discounts in 1% increments.  This is usually applied monthly.  This year Miami-Dade has given property owners an additional 13 days to still obtain the full potential 4% discount.  The typical due date of November 30th 2017 has been pushed to December 13, 2017.  Should you miss this date, you will still qualify for a 3% discount if paid by December 31, 2017.  Paid by January 31, 2018 will get you  a 2% discount while February 28th will be a 1% reduction. 

As a reminder the last date to pay with no discount is March 31st.  If you miss this deadline you may incur additional fees and if you let it lapse for years you could lose the property.  In addition, if you have filed an appeal with us or in another manner, you will automatically forfeit your right to an appeal.  Please timely pay your property taxes, it is the only way we can fight it for you.
