Property Tax Oversight

In Florida, local governments are responsible for administering property tax. The Department of Revenue's Property Tax Oversight p​rogram provides oversight and assistance to local government officials, including property appraisers, tax collectors, and value adjustment boards.


Because property tax is administered locally, the best resources for assistance with property tax matters are the property appraiser​ and the tax collector​ in the county where the property is located.
