Your Guide to Brevard County’s Property Taxes

  • Taxes for each property must be paid in full and in one lump sum (excluding installments and tax deferrals).
  • Significant discounts are granted in case of early payment.Brevard-County-Property-Appraiser-Map-Search

Value taxes or property taxes are based on the value of the property and are paid in arrears. The fiscal year runs from January 1st to December 31st. The Office of the Property Appraiser sets the value of the property, and the Board of County Commissioners, the school board, city commissioners, and other collection agencies set mileage rates. A factory equals $1.00 for every $1,000.00 of property value.

Using the values ​​as a whole and taking exceptions into account, the real estate specialist completes the tax plan and approves it to the Treasury. The tax documents are then certified by the property appraiser to the tax collector who, in turn, sends the tax notice/tax receipt to the owner’s last registered address as stated on the tax document.

In cases where the homeowner pays his property taxes into an escrow account, his mortgage lender must apply for the tax account. In this case, the owner would receive a notice that the original of their tax notice has been sent to their escrow account administrator.
