Real Estate Property Taxes

Real estate property taxes, also referred to as real property taxes, are a combination of ad valorem and non-ad valorem assessments. Ad valorem taxes are based on the value of property. Non-ad valorem assessments are fees for specific services such as solid waste disposal, water management, sewer, storm water, and special improvements.

The Tax Collector prints, mails, and collects tax payments based on information contained in the current tax roll that is certified by the Property Appraiser and Levying Authority.

The Property Appraiser sets the value on property based on current market value, including buildings and improvements. Any exemptions you have applied for and received are deducted from the assessed value, which becomes a taxable value. If you have questions on your value or exemption allowed, contact the Property Appraiser at www.leepa.org or 239.533.6100.

If you are a new property owner in Lee County, view our new property owner brochure. If you do not receive a tax notice for each property and/or account you own, view your bill online or contact our office for a duplicate.
