Disagree with the assessed value of your property?


NAPLES -- Crystal K. Kinzel, Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller, would like to remind property owners that the deadline to file a petition with the Value Adjustment Board (VAB) is 5 p.m., Friday, Septe.10, 2021. The VAB hears appeals made by property owners who disagree with the assessment of their property’s value, or with the denial of a property tax exemption or classification.

During the week of August 16, property owners received their 2021 Notice of Proposed Property Taxes, also called a Truth in Millage (TRIM) notice, from the Collier County Property Appraiser. Property owners in disagreement with any of the following found in the notice have options as authorized by Florida Statute Chapter 194:

• The property appraiser’s assessment of the property’s value;

• A denial of an application for an exemption, such as homestead, veterans, or senior citizen;

• A denial of an application for property classification, such as agricultural or historic;

• A denial of an application for tax deferral; or

• A determination that a change of ownership or control, or a qualifying improvement has occurred.

Property owners who disagree with their property’s assessed value are encouraged to contact the Office of the Collier County Property Appraiser to discuss how the value was determined. If the disagreement remains unresolved, the property owner may file a petition to appeal the assessment with the VAB. The Office of Collier County Clerk receives and processes petitions and schedules hearings. Property owners may file online at www.CollierClerk.com or in person at the VAB Office, Building F, 3299 Tamiami Trail East, Suite 401, Naples, FL 34112.

The fee for filing with the VAB is $15 per parcel. The deadline to file is 5 p.m., Sept. 10.
