Pursuant to Section 193.122 Florida Statutes, Bill Furst, Property Appraiser of Sarasota County, hereby gives notice that the 2023 Real Property and Tangible Personal Property Assessment Rolls for Sarasota County were certified to the Tax Collector on the 29th day of September 2023 for the collection of taxes.
TRIM notices mailed
Truth-in-Millage notices, commonly referred to as TRIM notices, were mailed to the address on file with the Property Appraiser on August 18, 2023. The notices contain the valuation for the tax roll, which is the value on January 1, 2023, a summary of any tax exemptions, and the amount of taxes that would be due based on the proposed millage rates from the taxing bodies. The actual tax bills will be mailed by the Tax Collector by November 1 and will use the final millage rates as determined in public hearings.
Copies of the notice are available online by searching for your property and using the blue "2023 TRIM" button near the top of the page.
Notices were mailed with a supplement that explains how to interpret the notice and other important information.
If you have any questions or concerns about your notice, use the email a department form or call 941-861-8200. For the form, you will need to select a department and enter the account number shown on the top of the TRIM notice.
