Property Tax Bills in the Mail!

Some may call it a trick, some a treat but it’s that time of year when the property tax bills are in the mail. Broward County, FL Tax officials mailed out the tax bills on Nov 1st while counties like Orange County mailed the bills out on October 31st (Halloween). Just about all the county tax collectors are sending the tax bills out. Broward County Records, Taxes and Treasury Division has mailed more than 430,000 property tax bills for 2012, which must be paid no later than March 31, 2013 to avoid penalties and delinquency fees. Property taxes may be paid as early as November 1, 2012, to take advantage of discounts. A 4 percent discount applies to taxes paid in November; a 3 percent discount applies in December; a 2 percent discount in January; and a 1 percent discount in February. Property owners without mortgages, or those who do not make use of an escrow arrangement, may pay their taxes in person or by mail to any of the tax collectors throughout Florida. You can also make partial payments throughout the year but you have to contact the tax collector’s office to take advantage of the program. Find your tax collector’s office here.
