TANGIBLE PROPERTY TAXES



2022 Property Tax Bills are available online. Hard copies of the bills were mailed on Nov. 23. These notices reflect property values as of Jan. 1, 2022 when State law required them to be assessed and do not reflect the impacts of Hurricane Ian.

If your storage building, commercial building, or business assets have suffered damage from the storm, please contact the Property Appraiser’s Office. You can call them at 239-533-6100 or visit their website at leepa.org. Reporting damage from the Hurricane is important for the January 1, 2023, assessment date.

If you operate a business, or rent your real property, you are subject to ad valorem taxes.

Tangible personal property tax is an ad valorem tax based on the following categories of property:

  1. Businesses: furnishings, fixtures, signs, supplies, and equipment used in the operation of business.
  2. Rental Furnishings: furnishings and appliances provided in a rental unit.

Based on Florida Statute 193.052, anyone in possession of assets on January 1 must file a Tangible Personal Property Tax Return (DR-405) with the Property Appraiser no later than April 1 of each year.

Failure or late filing of a return will result in a penalty and/or additional costs.

If you are a business owner, you will receive a Lee County tangible personal property tax notice.

If you have received a tangible personal property tax notice and would like more information, please view the resources below:
