Welcome to the Volusia County Property Appraiser Website
Last November the voters overwhelmingly passed an amendment to our State's Constitution giving a property tax exemption to first responders who became totally disabled in the line of duty.
Although this amendment took effect January 1st, it was not self-executing and required implementation by our State's Legislature in order to fully take effect. The Legislature has now finished the requirements for this exemption to be fully executed. The deadline to file for this property tax exemption has been extended to August 1st for the 2017 Tax Roll year. More information about the requirements and who may qualify for this exemption can be found here.
In other news, it is Hurricane season, and so far there have been many named storms. Please take some time to put a storm plan in place, and if you need help or suggestions to do so, visit the National Hurricane Center's website for valuable information on hurricane preparedness. Remember, knowing the essentials of how to prepare for a hurricane can truly be a life saver.
Lastly, we are heading into TRIM (TRuth In Millage) season in our office, and next month the Notice of Proposed Property Taxes will be mailed out to all property owners in Volusia County. Now is a great time to make sure we have your correct mailing address on file, and if you need to have it changed, fill out a change of address form and get it to us by the 31st of July to ensure you receive your TRIM notice in a timely fashion.
Once again, if you have any questions, please contact us any time.
