Property Values and COVID-19
Welcome to the Volusia County Property Appraiser Website
The Notice of Proposed Property Taxes, also known as TRIM (TRuth In Millage), were mailed on Monday, August 17th. We understand that these notices can be confusing, so our office has created a tool which gives an in-depth explanation of the different columns, values and rates.
Once you receive your notice, take a look at your property's value and any exemptions or classifications that you have. If you believe that the value assessed is not accurate or you feel you are entitled to an exemption or classification that is not reflected on your notice, please call or stop by one of our four offices. If we cannot resolve the issue, you may file a petition for adjustment with the Value Adjustment Board (VAB). For more information about the VAB or how to file a petition, click here. The deadline to file a petition is September 11, 2020.
On the back of your notice under the Taxing Authority Hearing Information section, there are dates, times and locations for each public hearing associated with your property. This is when the taxing authorities adopt their budgets and tax rates. You may attend any or all of these meetings and get answers to any questions you may have. Due to Covid-19, some taxing authorities have opted to host their meetings virtually. For more information about the virtual sessions, visit the taxing authority's website, a listing of which is enclosed with your TRIM notice.
Lastly, all of our offices are observing social distancing guidelines as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and also require that all visitors wear a face covering.
