Our offices are aware of the impact that COVID-19 has had on our community and understand that many of our citizens have concerns about the value of their property as well as their property tax obligation during this challenging period.
Under Florida law, county property appraisers must value every property in the state as of January 1, 2020 by analyzing sales data from 2019. Any effect from COVID-19 would not impact 2020 property values. The first two cases of COVID-19 were not announced in the state of Florida until March 1, 2020.
Our appraisers consistently monitor market transactions and trends. Any increase or decrease in sale prices which occur in 2020 will impact property values as of January 1, 2021.
