Tangible Property Tax


 

Delinquent Tangible Property Tax Information

Unpaid Tangible taxes become delinquent April 1st of the next year, at which time 1.5% interest a month and a $10 delinquent fee is added. Interest continues to accrue at 1.5% per month until paid. Advertising charges are added May 1st. Should the taxes remain unpaid, a warrant is assigned July 1st, and court costs are added. Yearly, a court hearing is held to ratify warrants which enable the Tax Collector to seize and sell Tangible Personal Property for non-payment of taxes if necessary. The Tax Collector is required by Florida Statutes to pursue collection of tangible taxes for the life of the lien, which is seven years.
