Property taxes in Sarasota County, Florida, are paid in arrears, meaning they are due on March 31 of the following year. However, homeowners receive a 1% discount for each month they pay in advance. So those who pay in November receive a 4% discount. Tax bills are sent the first week of November each year.
This is the period of time in which the property appraiser, on behalf of all tax authorities, mails the proposed Property Tax Notices and the proposed or adopted non-ad valorem assessments (also called the TRIM Notice) to all property owners. The notice includes the taxes proposed to be evaluated by each taxing authority, the dates of public hearings, and the new current market value and assessed value of your property. The Sarasota County Property Assessor delivers the certified tax list to the Tax Collector and the Florida Department of Revenue. Properties within the county are valued by the property appraiser's office based on their state as of this date each year.
