Delinquent Property Taxes
Penalty & Fees for Delinquent Taxes
Taxes and assessments are due November 1 and become delinquent April 1, at which time Florida Statues impose late charges and require the Tax Collector to advertise the delinquent parcels in a local newspaper, once per week for three consecutive weeks, and prior to the Tax Certificate Sale.
Delinquent Real Estate Taxes
A 3% minimum mandatory charge and advertising charge is imposed on April 1. If payment is not received at the Tax Collector’s office before June 1st, a lien will be placed against the property and additional charges shall be due.
Tangible Personal Property Taxes
Interest accrues at a rate of 1.5% per month plus advertising and fees. Tax warrants are issued for all unpaid property taxes.
All payments received after March 31, regardless of postmark date, are considered delinquent.
If the postmark indicates your payment was mailed on or after April 1 (the delinquency date), the amount due is determined by the date your payment is received in the Tax Collector's office as interest applies.
If the payment is not received and processed by the Tax Collector's office before the date of our annual Tax Certificate Sale, a tax certificate will be sold on your property and additional charges will accrue.
