Owning a property is a financial commitment that takes proper planning. One annual expense that’s guaranteed is property taxes. It’s imperative that homeowners in Miami are aware of their responsibility in paying these taxes appropriately and on time.
Here are three important factors to know about property taxes in Miami.
- Tax Year and Annual Notices
The tax year runs the same as the calendar year, from January to December. Tax rolls will not be open until November first of 2018, and property owners should be aware to expect their tax notices on November first of each year.
- Discounts Available for Early Payment
- If taxes are paid in November, you will save 4%.
- If paid in December, you will save 3%.
- If paid in January, the discount is 2%.
- If paid in February, the discount is 1%.
- Value Adjustment Board Petitions
If a property owner petitions the assessment of the value of their property, the owner must still pay 75% of the petitioned property’s assessed Ad Valorem Taxes, and 100% of the property’s Non-Ad Valorem Assessments by March 31, 2018.
