      Check Your Mailbox For Your
      TRIM Notice In August

        This month, the property appraiser mails “Truth in
      Millage” (TRIM) Notice of Proposed Property Taxes to
      property owners. This is not a bill. These notices provide
      information on any proposed changes in the millage rate
      (tax rate) of each taxing authority and lists your property’s
      market and assessed value. They also list exemptions applied
      to your property.
        Please remember, the tax collector does not determine
      the amount you must pay for property taxes. We collect the
      amount due and distribute the revenue to the appropriate
      taxing authorities. Many factors influence the amount you
      must pay in annual property taxes. This graphic illustrates
      how these factors are added together to determine your
      annual property taxes.
        Please contact the Palm Beach County Property
      Appraiser’s Office for questions about taxable value. Contact
      your local municipality with questions pertaining to millage
      rates and non-ad valorem taxes.
        If you don’t agree with your assessed value of your
      property, you can file a petition for adjustment with the Value
      Adjustment Board (VAB). The VAB settles disputes between
      taxpayers and the property appraiser. The deadline to file a
      petition is Sept. 14. For more information on filed petitions,
      hearing dates, rescheduling, the appeal process and/or final
      decisions, call the VAB at (561) 355-6289 or visit www.
