Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s Office Mails 2021 Notice of Proposed Property Taxes

08.26.2021

West Palm Beach, FL – As required by Florida law, the Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s Office has mailed notices to all property owners in Palm Beach County on behalf of the taxing authorities that set the tax rates and levy taxes on properties.

While it may at first glance look like an invoice, THIS IS NOT A BILL.

On one side, you’ll see the proposed taxes to be levied on your property by the taxing authorities, along with the dates, times, and locations of the taxing authorities’ budget hearings. During those hearing, your final millage (tax) rates will be determined and so those meetings are your opportunity to raise concerns about proposed tax rates.

In addition, there is a section for non–ad valorem assessments, which are charges for governmental services to your area such as solid waste, drainage, street lighting, etc. They are not based on the value of your property, so the Property Appraiser’s Office is not responsible for any assessments in this portion of the notice.

On the other side of the notice, you will find the market, assessed, and taxable values of your property, along with any qualified exemptions and assessment caps.

Also listed is information regarding the process for filing a petition to appeal your market valuation. A petition must be filed with the Value Adjustment Board by 5 p.m. on September 13, 2021.
