- There is no discount for payments made in March
- Tax become delinquent on April 1st
In accordance with Florida Statute 197.162(4), if the discount ends on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, the discount period, including the zero percent period, extends to the next working day for payments at any of our branch locations.
Taxes are assessed as of January 1 of each year and are normally due and payable on November 1 of that year. According to Florida Statute 197.122, all property owners have the responsibility to know the amount of tax due and to pay the taxes before April 1 of the following year.
Failure to receive a tax bill on your property will not relieve you from paying taxes or subsequent penalties which are imposed when taxes become delinquent on April 1.
Taxes and non-ad valorem assessments become delinquent April 1 at which time 3% interest and advertising costs are added. The amount due on delinquent payments is determined by date received, not by postmark.
