The Truth in Millage (TRIM) Act is a law designed to inform taxpayers which governmental entity is responsible for the taxes levied and the amount of tax liability taxpayers owe to each taxing authority. Every year in August the property appraiser sends this information, known as the Notice of Proposed Property Taxes and Proposed or Adopted Non-Ad Valorem Assessments (TRIM Notice), to the property owner.
The TRIM Notice provides property owners with information regarding ad valorem millage rates, budget hearing dates and non-ad valorem assessment information for fees such as fire and rescue services, solid waste services and stormwater utility collections among others. The TRIM requirements also provide for maximum millage levies for counties, municipalities, and independent special districts. These requirements are prescribed by chapter 200 of the Florida Statutes.
