Property Appraiser’s Office Mails TRIM Notices Of Proposed Taxes

The Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s Office recently mailed Proposed Notices of Property Taxes to all property owners in the county.

The number of notices sent were 657,921, representing real property, personal property and centrally assessed property.

The notice, which is not a bill, informs taxpayers which governmental entity is responsible for the taxes levied and the amount of tax liability owed to each taxing entity. It also provides the market, assessed and taxable values of property, plus information about qualified exemptions.

In addition, the TRIM notice lists details on public hearings for discussion of the proposed budgets of each taxing authority. For specific questions regarding proposed taxes, there are contact numbers for each taxing authority.

If a property owner disagrees with the value, classification or exemption status on the TRIM notice, he or she can call (561) 355-3230. Employees of the Property Appraiser’s Office are committed to assessing property values in a fair and accurate manner.

If there’s no agreement between a property owner and the office’s determination of the value, the property owner can file a petition with the Palm Beach County Value Adjustment Board. The deadline to file a petition is Sept. 15.
