Pursuant to Section 193.122 Florida Statutes, Bill Furst, Property Appraiser of Sarasota County, hereby gives notice that the 2020 Real Property and Tangible Personal Property Assessment Rolls for Sarasota County were certified to the Tax Collector on the 5th day of October, 2020 for the collection of taxes.

Street-Level Imaging Project

The need for current property imagery in the appraisal process has never been more critical than in these uncertain times. We have contracted with iLookabout, Inc. to collect street-level images for each property in the county.  The project will take place in October and November of this year. iLookabout drivers will be canvassing the county in clearly marked vans with cameras mounted on the roof.

For more information, visit our Inspections & Property Imagery page.  


Virtual Property Inspections

To help navigate these uncertain times and to protect the health and safety of property owners and our staff, we are offering the option for virtual inspections in place of an in-person inspection. Inspections are required for properties with recent building permits, recently sold properties or at the request of the property owner to verify a deficiency or condition impacting value.

For more information, visit our Inspections & Property Imagery page.
