Attention homeowners! On behalf of all taxing authorities, the 2020 Truth-In-Millage (TRIM) Notices were mailed on Friday, August 14th, and this year’s values are available online for your review. This notice is NOT a bill, but rather an estimate of your taxes based on the proposed tax rates, property value and any exemptions as of January 1, 2020. Included in the Notice are dates and times of budgetary public meetings for each tax authority and certain non-ad valorem assessment information.
We urge all property owners to carefully review their TRIM notices as soon as they are received. If you believe that the value assessed is not accurate or you feel you are entitled to an exemption that is not reflected on your notice, please call or stop by one of our two offices. If, after conferring with one of our appraisers, you believe our APPRAISED VALUE is higher than the market value for the assessment date of January 1st, you may file a petition with the Value Adjustment Board. Property owners have just 25 days from the mailing of the TRIM notice to review the valuation and challenge the assessment or market value on the property. If you wait until you receive your bill in November to voice concerns about your taxes, you will lose your right to file an appeal.
NOTE: The Property Appraiser does not set tax rates or collect taxes. If you have questions concerning your proposed taxes, you should contact the Taxing Authority listed on your Notice.
The Property Appraiser and staff strive to be fair and accurate for all and look forward to serving you.
