2023 Tax Certificate Sale Information for Florida Counties

Annually, the Property Tax Oversight program surveys tax collectors to capture information regarding the location of the counties' tax certificate sales, whether live or electronic. The 2023 Tax Certificate Sale Information for Florida Counties is available to the general public as the tax collectors prepare for the sale of tax certificates for unpaid taxes. Please contact the county tax collector for additional information.​​


​On December 16, 2022, Chapter 2022-272 was signed into law, providing property tax relief for residential properties rendered uninhabitable for 30 days or more due to Hurricane Ian or Hurricane Nicole. Property owners must file an application for refund with the property appraiser no sooner than January 1, 2023 and no later than April 3, 2023.

The Department has prepared Property Tax Oversight Informational Bulletin 23-01 to provide general information on the new law.

The Department has also developed A Florida Homeowner's Guide: Property Tax Relief for Hurricane Ian or Hurricane Nicole to assist taxpayers who may be eligible for refund.​​
