Important Property Tax Information Due to Hurricane Ian
Your tax collector is very sensitive to the needs of citizens and property owners affected by the recent damage due to the Hurricane Ian; however, state law still requires the tax collector to mail and collect 2022 property tax bills. Property taxes are payable anytime between now and March 31, 2023; you receive a discount for paying early and there is no penalty for late payment until after March 31, 2023.
In order to assist taxpayers in need, the Governor’s Executive Order (EO) 22-242 provides for an extension of the November 4% discount period until January 31, 2023, as well as an extension of the March 31, 2023 payment deadline until May 31, 2023 if your property has been completely destroyed and/or is otherwise rendered uninhabitable. Please sign the statement below and return to the tax collector’s office if you believe your property qualifies for the extension.
Under penalties of perjury I, __________________________________ (print name) hereby apply for an extension of the November 4% discount period and the March 31st payment deadline on the following properties, due to the fact my property has been completely destroyed and/or is otherwise uninhabitable.
Email address: ______________________________________________. If you provide your email address, you will receive confirmation of the extension within 10-business days; otherwise, an updated tax bill will be mailed to you.
You have the following options to submit this request.
