Property Appraiser's Office Submits July 1 Preliminary Tax Roll


West Palm Beach, FL – The Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s Office has submitted the 2019 preliminary tax roll to Florida’s Department of Revenue and the local taxing authorities. Palm Beach County-wide property (taxable) values have increased 6.21% from 2018 to 2019. These values are based upon market conditions as of January 1, 2019.

Taxing authorities will use these values to help them prepare for their upcoming budgets and to determine their proposed millage (tax) rates. The preliminary tax roll is a systematic listing of information pertaining to the just valuation of all real property within Palm Beach County, for purposes of ad valorem taxation.

Highlights include:

  • Total Market value:  $277,597,143,065
  • Total Taxable value:  $198,970,376,584
  • Total Net New Construction Taxable:  $2,589,802,843
  • Total Parcel Count:  641,487
  • Total Tangible Accounts:  59,781

“Palm Beach County’s market value continues to experience a steady increase year over year.  Construction in apartment complexes, hotels, and warehousing is helping to create value in many areas,” said Property Appraiser Dorothy Jacks, CFA, AAS.

Once the tax roll is approved (usually in late July), the Property Appraiser’s Office will prepare the "Truth In Millage" (TRIM) Notices for Palm Beach County residents, which are mailed in mid-August.

This is the second of three certifications of value required (by law) of the Property Appraiser’s Office. A final certification occurs prior to the November 1 tax bill.
