Tangible Property Tax
Delinquent Tangible Property Tax
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 and a 20% collection cost 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 to pursue collection of tangible taxes for the life of the lien, which is seven years.
The Hillsborough County Tax Collector has contracted with Revenue Recovery Solutions, Inc. for the collection of all delinquent Tangible Personal Property Tax accounts. If your account is not paid in full, your tax liability will include a 20% collection fee and other costs as authorized by Florida Statute 197.332(1).
