March 17, 2020 ‑ Broward County Property Appraiser’s Office COVID-19 Update

As of March 17, Broward County has not closed the Broward County Governmental Center located at 115 South Andrews Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301.   Our office is continuing to work; however, the health and safety of the public and of our employees is paramount so our office will be closed to the public.  Our employees interact in proximity with the public and I do not want one of our staff members to contract the coronavirus and/or to pass it on to our residents.  Further, many residents who visit our office every day are residents that may be most vulnerable such as seniors or residents who have significant health conditions.   To protect the public and our employees, the Broward County Property Appraiser’s Office is closing our office to the public beginning March 18 and will reopen when it is safe to do so.

Communication with our office can be handled electronically via website, email, fax or phone.

THE PROPERTY APPRAISER DOES NOT SEND TAX BILLS.
THE PROPERTY APPRAISER DOES NOT SET OR COLLECT TAXES.
Contact the Tax Collector directly: revenue@broward.org or at 954-831-4000

The COUNTY TAX COLLECTOR (note: NOT part of our office) mailed the annual tax bills during the first week of November. Tax bills become delinquent if not paid in full before April 1 of the following year. Pursuant to the Order of Emergency Waiver-Deviation #20-52-DOR-01 the Department of Revenue has extended the property tax payment due date from March 30, 2020 to April 15, 2020 due to COVID-19. Discounts are available for early payments. Also, you may make partial payments of your current year taxes until the statutory payment deadline. After that date, any taxes still owing become delinquent. The Property Appraiser does NOT set your tax rate nor collect the taxes. The Property Appraiser is responsible for ensuring the fair assessment (value) of all properties and applying all exemptions. Your County Commission, School Board, City Commission, Water District, and other boards set your tax rates.

WE ARE VISITING NEIGHBORHOODS AROUND BROWARD!

By state law, we must personally view each property in Broward County at least once every five years. That is why our residential appraisers are busy these days inspecting, measuring and photographing the exteriors of properties throughout Broward. Our appraisers are easy to recognize: all of them wear official shirts clearly identifying them as BCPA staff, and each carries a BCPA photo identification card and badge. Feel free to ask to see an ID if you have any concerns. Important Note: Our appraisers will NEVER ask to enter your home, and we will NEVER enter locked backyards. If you have questions about these inspections, please contact our office at 954.357.6831.

If you have any suggestions for improving our office, please email me by clicking here.

Sincerely,
Marty Kiar
