JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -
Property owners in Duval County will be receiving Notices of Proposed Property Taxes over the next few days. The notices, often called Truth in Millage (T.R.I.M.) notices, were mailed to Duval property owners Aug. 20.
Each notice lists proposed property values, applicable exemptions and property tax estimates based on tax rates proposed by the taxing authorities. The notice also includes a schedule of public hearings held by each taxing authority.
Property owners who have questions about their notice or disagree with the proposed market value, may visit the Duval County Property Appraisers Office downtown at 231 E. Forsyth Street or call (904) 630-2011 for an informal review.
All formal petitions to the Value Adjustment Board (V.A.B.) to appeal the market value of property or the denial of an exemption or classification must be filed within 25 calendar days of the mailing of the notices. This years deadline to file a formal petition with the V.A.B. is Sept. 14. Petitions must be directly mailed or hand-delivered to the V.A.B. office at City Hall, 117 W. Duval Street, Suite 305, Jacksonville, Florida 32202 and received by 5 p.m. on Sept. 14.
County officials emphasize that the notice is not a bill. Property tax bills are mailed by the Tax Collector on or about Nov. 1.
TRIM notices inform property owners of the taxes they will owe, which are determined by the millage rates set by each taxing authority based on the values determined by our office, Duval County Property Appraiser Jerry Holland said. If you have questions or concerns about your notice, please feel free to contact my office. We strive to be fair and accurate for all and look forward to serving you.
More details regarding the Notices of Proposed Property Taxes, petition forms and other information are available on the Property Appraisers website at www.duvalpa.com.
The Duval County Property Appraisers Office is open Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The office will be closed Sept. 7 in observance of Labor Day.
