As 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. Find websites for county property appraisers, tax collectors, and VABs at floridarevenue.com/PTO/countyofficials.

To keep Florida taxpayers updated and informed of available resources post Hurricane Ian, the Department of Revenue has published a Hurricane Ian resource page located ​here. Information relevant to Florida proper​ty owners can be found at the bottom of the page under the Property Tax Oversight accordion.​​


The Department has developed two guides to provide information to property owner’s affected by Hurricane Ian. A Florida Property Owner’s Guide: Executive Order 22-242, Hurricane Ian​ provides information specific to property owners whose property was completely destroyed or otherwise rendered uninhabitable by Hurricane Ian. A Florida Homeowner's Guide: Hurricane Ian​​​​ provides answers to frequently asked questions for all homeowner’s impacted by Hurricane Ian.​​​​​

On October 20, 2022 the Governor issued Executive Order (EO) 22-242 (Property Taxes - Hurricane Ian), providing relief to some owners of property in the 26 counties the Federal Emergency Management Agency​​ (FEMA) designated as eligible for the Individual Assistance Program in the wake of Hurricane Ian. The Department developed this ​​​​​​guide to help property owners understand how the EO may affect them.
