You must submit a DR-518 - Cutout Request Form with the following areas completed:

  • Tax Roll Year, County, and Date
  • In the section that says “Completed By Requestor & Tax Collector”, enter the name of the person requesting the cutout, parcel number that is having a piece removed ("cutout"), the property/legal description, who it is currently assessed to and their mailing address.
  • In the next section, you must enter the description of the piece of property that is to be cutout, who it should be assessed to and their mailing address.  Leave the remainder of the form blank (the parcel number for the cutout property will be issued during the cutout process).
  • Sign where it says "Signature of person requesting cutout ". 

The completed form and a copy of the recorded deed should be submitted to the Quality Assurance Department at the Manatee County Tax Collector’s Office by email (

Note:  If the property taxes have been paid on the parcel, a cut-out cannot be requested.
