Tax notices are mailed on or before November 1 of each year. All tax payments are due before April 1, at which time the taxes become delinquent and additional charges will apply.
Florida Statute 197.162 offers taxpayers a discount paying their taxes early.
For payments made by mail, discounts are based on the postmark of the payment. Discounts for payments made in person are based on the actual date received. If the tax collector's office is closed on the last day of the month, the prior month's discount will be accepted the following business day.
- 4% if paid in November
- 3% if paid in December
- 2% if paid in January
- 1% if paid in February
According to Florida law, it is the taxpayer's responsibility to know when taxes are due. If you do not receive a bill in November, you will need to contact the tax collector's office to request a duplicate bill.
