TRIM Notices Mailed on August 17th
The 2018 Notice of Proposed Property Taxes and Proposed or Adopted Non-Ad Valorem Assessments (TRIM Notices) were mailed on August 17th.
Please review your TRIM Notice as soon as you receive it to ensure all the information is correct. Be aware that there is a deadline to file a Value Adjustment Board petition.
Included with the notice will be our 2018 Supplement newsletter which contains information about property valuation and exemptions affecting taxpayers in Sarasota County.
As always, the Property Appraiser's office is ready to answer any of your value or exemption questions. Please remember that our office does not set the millage rates, adopt budgets or collect taxes. If your questions concern any of those issues, please contact the taxing authority listed in the notice. Their meeting dates, locations and times are printed on the back side of the form.

Additional Homestead Exemption Estimator
A homestead exemption estimator is now available to determine if property owners will benefit from the proposed additional $25,000 homestead exemption (Amendment 1) that will be on the November 2018 ballot.
The 3rd Homestead Exemption Estimator tool allows a property owner to select their county and enter their address to find out how much, if any, their property may benefit if the constitutional amendment passes. The web search tool can be accessed at www.3hxestimator.org.
