Proposed Tax Forms Mailed To Property Owners


By this time you should have received your 2018 Notice of Proposed Taxes (also known as the TRIM notice or Truth-in-Millage). This is not a tax bill. You will receive a bill from the Office of the Tax Collector in November, 2018.
This notice contains your property’s market value as of January 1, 2018, the millage (tax rates) proposed by each local government, and an estimate of the amount of property taxes owed, based on the proposed tax rates.
Please keep in mind that the Property Appraiser does not set your tax rate; that is the responsibility of your local taxing authorities. If you have questions regarding tax rates and would like to get in contact with the taxing authority, their contact information, along with the date, time, and location of their public hearing is printed on the front of the Notice of Proposed Property Taxes.
Your 2018 market value is based upon 2017 sales of comparable properties. Sales that occurred during 2017 will impact the 2018 market value. I will be more than happy to answer questions about your property’s market value.
Property tax exemptions reduce the taxable value of your property and could result in a tax savings. As your Glades County Property Appraiser, I want to make sure that you are aware of all exemptions available to you. If you would like more information about property tax exemptions, I encourage you to visit me at the office, call or email. Just a few minutes of your time could save you money.
