Ad Valorem taxes on real property and Tangible Personal Property Taxes are collected by the Tax Collector on an annual basis beginning on November 1st for the calendar year January through December. It is the responsibility of each taxpayer to ensure that his/her taxes are paid and that a tax bill is received. The Property Appraiser’s Office establishes the assessed value of a property and the Board of County Commissioners and other levying bodies set the millage rates. Using these figures, the Property Appraiser prepares the tax roll. Upon completion, the tax roll is then certified to the Tax Collector who prints and mails the tax notices. Tax notices are sent to the owner’s last address of record. In cases where the property owner pays through an escrow account, the mortgage company should request the tax bill and the owner will receive a copy of the notice. Tax statements are normally mailed on or before October 31st of each year.
