NOTICE OF PROPOSED PROPERTY TAXES EXPLANATION (Section 200.069, Florida Statutes)

*COLUMN 1—"YOUR PROPERTY TAXES LAST YEAR" - This column shows the taxes that applied last year to your property. These amounts were based on budgets adopted last year and your property’s previous taxable value. *COLUMN 2—"YOUR TAXES IF NO BUDGET CHANGE IS ADOPTED" - This column shows what your taxes will be this year IF EACH TAXING AUTHORITY DOES NOT CHANGE ITS PROPERTY TAX LEVY. These amounts are based on last year’s budgets and your current assessment. *COLUMN 3—"YOUR TAXES IF PROPOSED BUDGET CHANGE IS ADOPTED" - This column shows what your taxes will be this year under the BUDGET ACTUALLY PROPOSED by each local taxing authority. The proposal is NOT final and may be amended at the public hearings shown on this notice. The difference between Columns 2 and 3 is the tax change proposed by each local taxing authority and is NOT the result of higher assessments.

NOTE: Amounts shown on this form do NOT reflect early payment discounts you may have received or may be eligible to receive. (Discounts are a maximum of 4 percent of the amounts shown on this form.)

NON-AD VALOREM ASSESSMENTS: Your final tax bill may contain Non-Ad Valorem assessments which may not be reflected on this notice such as assessments for roads, fire, garbage, lighting, drainage, water, sewer, or other governmental services and facilities which may be levied by your county, city, or any special district

*Assessed Value is the market value of your property minus any assessment reductions. The assessed value may be different for levies made by different taxing authorities.

**Taxable Value is the value used to calculate the tax due on your property. Taxable value is the assessed value minus the value of your exemptions.

ASSESSMENT REDUCTIONS APPLIES TO VALUE
Assessment Limitation Benefit Non-School Levies $1,375
Properties can receive an assessment reduction for a number of reasons. There are limits on how much the assessment of your property can increase each year. For example, the Save Our Homes program and the limitation for non-homestead property are two types of reductions. Certain types of property, such as agricultural land and land used for conservation, are valued on their current use rather than market value. Some reductions lower the assessed value only for levies of certain taxing authorities. If your assessed value is lower than your market value because limits on increases apply to your property or because your property is valued based on its current use, the amount of the difference and the reason for the difference are listed in the Assessment Reduction section above.
EXEMPTIONS APPLIES TO VALUE
 
 
 
Any exemption that applies to your property is listed in this section along with its corresponding exemption value. Specific dollar or percentage reductions in assessed value may be applicable to a property based upon certain qualifications of the property owner. In some cases, an exemption’s value may vary depending on the taxing authority. The tax impact of an exemption may also vary for the same taxing authority, depending on the levy (e.g., operating millage vs. debt service millage.)
You may file a petition for an adjustment with the Value Adjustment Board. It is not mandatory to contact the Property Appraiser prior to doing so.
Petition forms are available from the Lee County Property Appraiser’s Office and also at www.leepa.org.
Online filing is now available at www.leeclerk.org.
All petitions must be filed with the Clerk of Courts Office ON OR BEFORE
