Duties of the Property Appraiser

The Property Appraiser is an elected county officer, as established by Article VIII of the Constitution of the State of Florida. Her duty is to determine the value of all property within the county, including improved and vacant real property, tangible personal property, and agricultural property. The Property Appraiser is also responsible for maintaining property ownership records and parcel ownership maps, and for administering tax exemptions such as homestead exemption, widows, widowers, blind exemptions, and disability and non-profit exemptions.

The Property Appraiser’s office is not a division or a department of the Board of County Commissioners. Her authority comes from the Florida Statutes as administered by the Governor and Cabinet. The Florida Department of Revenue is charged with the oversight of the Property Appraiser’s operations, and performs biennial in-depth audits of the integrity of valuations.

The Property Appraiser does not set tax rates, nor does she have the authority or power to reduce or raise the amount of tax which is owed on a particular property. The tax rates which are levied against each property are determined annually by several different taxing authorities.

Dual County Property Appraiser!

Welcome to the Duval County Property Appraiser’s website. Our staff is dedicated to providing you, the public, with the information you need to understand our role in determining your property values.  We are here to assist you with commercial, residential, tangible personal property and exemption questions. On this site you can access detailed information using both our real estate property search and tangible property search as well as formsexemption information and much, much more. Please scroll over to the menu options tab on the far top left of your screen to view all additional categories of available topics.

The Duval Clerk and Duval County Property Appraiser’s offices announces that the Clerk’s office has launched a Property Fraud Alert system to help citizens maintain the security of their property. This service allows participants to monitor a personal or business name and be notified whenever a document is recorded in Duval County under that name. Best of all, this program is entirely free of charge.

According to the FBI, property fraud is the fastest growing white-collar crime committed in the United States. Scammers file fake deeds, making it appear as if they own homes that are not actually theirs. These criminals then trick people into giving them money to rent or buy those homes.

The Fraud Alert seeks to help put a stop to these criminal acts. If a document is recorded that matches your monitoring criteria, you will receive an alert within 48 hours so that you can review the document to make sure it is legitimate. “We are happy to be able to promote the link for signing up on our website to help our taxpayers combat criminals who desire to falsely take possession of their property.”

For full details and to sign up for the Property Fraud Alert, please visit: duvalclerk.com/propertyfraud.

We welcome your suggestions for how we may serve you better.  It is our responsibility and pleasure to serve you. Please email me or call me at the number below.  I look forward to hearing from you.

The aerial imagery available from our website does not always reflect the actual boundaries and should never be relied upon when purchasing property. When conducting real estate transactions, we would encourage you to obtain the services of a licensed surveyor for property boundaries and contract with a title company before purchasing any property.

Florida law requires the Property Appraiser’s Office to inspect all property in the county at least once every five (5) years. We do not inspect the interior of residential properties. For your safety, all our employees drive clearly marked vehicles, wear blue collar shirts with our seal, and carry City of Jacksonville identification. Check out our video for what to expect.

File Online for a 2023 Homestead Exemption Those who own and moved into a new home in Duval County after January 1, 2022, may now file for a 2023  homestead exemption using the homestead exemption online application.

To be eligible for a homestead exemption, the property must be your permanent home or the permanent home of a person who is legally or naturally dependent on you on January 1 of the tax roll year for which you are applying. The online application will walk you through the filing process and can be submitted over the web.

You may also file by completing the manual Homestead Exemption application. You may submit the manual application with other required documentation to the Customer Service/Exemptions Division at 231 E. Forsyth Street, Suite 260, Jacksonville, Florida 32202, fax it to (904) 255-7963, or e-mail it to pacustserv@coj.net.

The deadline to file timely for the 2023 Tax Roll is March 1, 2023. Late filing is permitted through early September. (The deadline for late filing is set by Florida law and falls on the 25th day following the mailing of the Notices of Proposed Property Taxes which occurs in mid-August.)

If you established a new homestead and had a previous homestead exemption on another home in Florida, you may be eligible for Portability – the transfer of some or all of your previous homestead’s “Save Our Homes” benefit (the difference between your market and assessed values due to the annual cap on increases).

When filing online, some special circumstances may require that additional documentation be mailed to the Property Appraiser’s Office. In these cases, users will be prompted with necessary forms or a list of needed documents at the end of the process.

If you need further assistance, please contact our Customer Service/Exemptions Division staff at 904-255-5900.

Notices of Proposed Property Taxes

The 2022 Notices of Proposed Property Taxes, also called the “Truth in Millage” (TRIM) Notices, was mailed to property owners on Friday, August 19th, 2022. The formal deadline to file a petition with the Value Adjustment Board (VAB), printed on the TRIM Notice, is Tuesday, September 13th, 2022.

If you initiate an informal review of your property’s value with the Property Appraiser’s Office, your patience is appreciated. Appraisers will process review requests, and notify property owners of the outcome of informal reviews. Your property tax record is available online. Once TRIMs are mailed you can access your property’s current TRIM information online too. Please use our Property Search or Tangible Search to retrieve information for your specific property.

For more information relating to the Value Adjustment Board, visit the VAB’s web site or call (904) 255-5124.  Important Note:  Property owners who filed petitions with the VAB are required to partially pay ad valorem taxes (75% in most cases) and pay all of the non-ad valorem taxes before the delinquency date (usually April 1) to avoid denial of their petition.  Contact the VAB for more information.

2022 Property tax bills will be mailed by the Tax Collector on or about November 1, 2022. If you have questions about how to pay your bill please go to http://www.coj.net/Departments/Tax-Collector.aspx or email at taxcollector@coj.net.
