2023 Broward County TRIM (proposed real estate tax) Notices and Appeals

2023 TRIM Notices

The Broward County Property Appraiser’s Office mails the TRIM (proposed tax) Notices in August of each year. This is NOT a tax bill but shows your property’s 2023 Just/Market Value, exemptions, and proposed taxes as set by the various taxing authorities. The TRIM Notice is your opportunity to review your 2023 Just Value and ensure you are receiving all the tax-saving exemptions you are eligible for.

Florida Statutes require our office use January 1 as the date of assessment each year. The 2023 Just Values are based on the market data from 2022 with January 1, 2023, as the date of assessment. Our office must consider changes in market conditions – up or down – when developing the Just/Market Values each year.

The Property Appraiser’s Office does not set or collect property taxes. If you have questions about the proposed tax rates, the contact information and public hearing dates for the individual taxing authorities are listed to the right of each agency name on the TRIM Notice.

I Recently Applied for Homestead Exemption–Why Is It Not Showing on My TRIM Notice?

Florida Statutes require our office use January 1 as the date of assessment and to determine exemption eligibility each year. If you purchased your home after January 1, 2023, you are eligible for 2024 Homestead Exemption. The 2024 exemptions will show online in December and be included for the 2024 tax year.

I Had Homestead Exemption Last Year – Where Did My Exemptions Go This Year?

If you purchased your home in 2022, you may have “inherited” the previous owner’s exemptions last year. These 2022 exemptions were removed at the end of 2022, so are no longer showing on your TRIM Notice for tax year 2023. Fortunately, you can still late file for 2023 Homestead and any other exemptions you may qualify for until September 18, 2023. To apply online, please visit our website at https://web.bcpa.net/bcpaclient/#/Homestead or scan the QR code below.

I Am a Senior Citizen – Why Isn’t the Senior Exemption Showing?

The Senior Exemption is both an age and income-based exemption that is not automatically applied to a property because of the income requirement. To be eligible for this exemption, an applicant must be age 65 or older as of January 1, 2023 and have an adjusted household gross income for 2022 not exceeding $35,167. If you believe you qualify for this additional exemption, you can still late file until September 18, 2023. To review the exemption requirements and to apply for this exemption, please go to our website at https://web.bcpa.net/bcpaclient/#/SeniorExemption

If the BCPA office can be of assistance to you, please feel free to contact the Property Appraiser at martykiar@bcpa.net

2108 Property Tax Bills Are in the Mail

houseWhile Khani & Auerbach practices real estate law beyond the tri-county area, we thought it might be beneficial for us to share this very useful information we received from the Broward County Property Appraiser’s office for our Broward County clients.  We hope you find the information beneficial.

Broward County Mails the 2018 Property Tax Bills

The Broward County Tax Collector’s Office recently mailed the 2018 tax bills to all property owners. While the Broward County Property Appraiser’s office does not set or collect these taxes, they wanted to share important information about the payment options available to property owners. If you have any questions about your tax bill or payment, please contact the Tax Collector’s office directly at (954)831-4000. Tax bills are also available to view, print, and pay online at https://broward.county-taxes.com starting November 1. For taxpayers whose bills are paid by escrow arrangement, the bill is sent directly to the mortgage company and you are sent a courtesy copy in mid-November.  At Khani & Auerbach, we recommend that you follow-up with your lender to ensure receipt, and ultimately the payment, of the tax bill.

Property taxes must be paid no later than March 31, 2019 to avoid delinquency interest, fees, and penalties, but to enjoy the greatest benefit of the early-payment discounts, the taxes may be paid as early as November 1, 2018. Khani & Auerbach ALWAYS recommends you take advantage of the early-payment discounts.  The discounts for payments made in full are as follows: a 4-percent discount if paid in November; a 3-percent discount applies in December; a 2-percent discount in January; and a 1-percent discount in February. The discounted amounts that apply to each month between November and February are already reflected on property tax bill coupons. These discounts apply only to full tax payments. Making a partial payment of property taxes forfeits any applicable discount otherwise available for full tax payments.


2018 tax payments can be made by the following methods:

Credit/Debit Card, or eCheck Online Payments: at https://broward.county-taxes.com – use the search function to locate the correct tax account then follow instructions for payment by credit/debit card or eCheck. There is a non-refundable 2.55% convenience fee for credit/debit card payments. eCheck payments have no additional fee.

By Mailing a Check: use the green return-envelope enclosed with the tax bill or mail payment to Broward County Tax Collector, Processing Center, P.O. Box 849375, Hollywood, FL 33084-9375. Always include the tax coupon with the check and write the tax account on the check to prevent processing delays. All check payments must be in US funds issued from a US bank account. The payment envelope’s postmark date is used to determine the applicable early-payment discount. If check payments are rejected or returned by your bank, the payment will be canceled, a return check fee will be charged, and discount deadlines will not be extended for substitute payments.

At any Wells Fargo Bank Branch located in Broward County: all 2018 tax bills (no delinquent tax payments) may be paid at any Wells Fargo Bank Branch in Broward County until March 31, 2019. Tax payments made at Wells Fargo must be paid in full only (no partial payments). Taxpayers must have their original 2018 tax bill to present to the bank at time of the payment. No credit, debit, or cash payments can be accepted by the banks for tax payment.

Partial Payments: 2018 taxes may be paid in up to five partial payments. Partial payments must be for a minimum of $100 and include a $10 processing fee. Partial payments forfeit all early-payment tax discounts that would otherwise apply to full payments. The final partial payment must be for the full remaining balance and paid by March 31, 2019 to avoid delinquency interest and fees on any remaining balance as of April 1, 2019. Partial payments cannot be made online or at Wells Fargo banks.
