NEWS UPDATE: July 28, 2022
Every owner, tenant, manager, lender, or developer of real estate in Florida has an opportunity to determine if the values assigned to their real estate interests are just. You may be able to substantially reduce your property tax liability through a tax assessment appeal.
2022 property tax assessment notices (TRIM notices) will be mailed to taxpayers by mid-August. Some county property appraisers have already posted values on their websites and many others should be posted soon. Now is the time to start thinking about filing a tax assessment appeal.
The time period to file an appeal is very short, but the deadline is listed on the TRIM notice. The appeal deadline depends on the date of mailing of the TRIM notice, however, the date TRIM notices are mailed varies by county. Appeals are typically due in mid-September. If you are interested in filing an appeal or learning more about the process, we can help provide you with information and advice specific to your property.  
The Ad Valorem Tax Group at Stearns Weaver Miller can assist with your property tax challenges before Value Adjustment Boards and in Circuit Court. In 2021, we were able to achieve significant tax reductions for clients. Contact our team to find out more.
