Sample Property Tax Report for a Bay County, FL property


The Florida Property Tax Statute and the Florida State Consitution are the main legal documents regarding taxation in the State of Florida. Taxes are determined at local levels, being used for schools, fire and police protection, and other public services and benefits.

Market Value

Market value is the price a property would sell for when both buyer and seller seek the best price and neither is under pressure to buy or sell. Market values in Florida are evaluated as of January 1, based upon sales of comparable properties in the previous year.

Land value $38,625
Building value + $95,666
Market value = $134,291
Assessed Value

Assessed value is the value of property after any assessment reductions, limitations, or caps have been applied. The annual increase of assessed value in Florida is limited to: 1) 3% greater than the prior year, or 2) the percentage change in the Consumer Price Index, whichever is lower.

Assessed value = $125,408
Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the property's taxable value by the millage rates applicable to it. The rates are expressed as millages (i.e the actual rates multiplied by 1000).

Florida provides taxpayers with a variety of exemptions that may lower property's tax bill. These are deducted from the assessed value to give the property's taxable value.

Current tax represents the amount the present owner pays including exemptions.
Base tax is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from any exemptions would pay.
Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement and financial assistance programs or to non-ad valorem assessments, which are levied for functions such as storm water utility, solid waste collections or fire and rescue.
