Property Taxes in Broward and Miami-Dade County
Along with each new home purchase come property taxes. New residents may wonder how the amount of Property Taxes is determined. The following formula can help you figure out your future Property Tax:
Assessed Value minus any exemptions multiplied by the millage rate and divided by 1000.
The assessed value is determined by a Property Appraiser. Exemptions can be things such as the property is being used for religious, educational, literary, government or scientific reasons. The definition of Millage Rate is: One mill equals $1.00 of tax for each $1,000 of property value. The millage rate is the total number of mills of tax assessed.
Residents of Broward and Miami-Dade Countiy will receive a Notice of Proposed Taxes each year by August 24th. There is a 25-day period where residents can receive an explanation of their assessed value. The Tax Notice will then be mailed in November to residents and become delinquent if not paid by April 1st. If a resident does not receive a Tax Bill in November it is their responsibility to contact the Tax Collector's Office to get another copy.
