Have Questions About Your 2023 Property Assessment or Exemptions?

Our Broward County Property Appraiser Marty Kiar, in his latest newsletter, has the answers you are seeking.  His office mailed over 776,000 TRIM (proposed tax) Notices to Broward County property owners last month. The 2023 Just/Market Values are based on the market data from 2022 as Florida Statutes require our office use January 1 as the date of assessment each year.  It is important to remember the Property Appraiser’s Office does not set or collect taxes.

If you believe you are entitled to a Homestead Exemption or any other exemption not shown on your TRIM Notice, you may still late file for any 2023 exemption until September 18, 2023. The ABSOLUTE deadline to file an application for any 2023 exemption or to appeal your property’s 2023 Just/Market Value is September 18, 2023.

If you believe your Just/Market Value is not what a buyer would have reasonably paid for your property on January 1, 2023, you should first contact our office.  If after speaking with one of our appraisers, you still do not agree, you can file an appeal with the Broward County Value Adjustment Board.  If you were denied an exemption, you may also file an appeal with the Value Adjustment Board challenging this denial.
