Discuss My Notice of Proposed Property Tax (TRIM Notice)
The August mailing of the annual Proposed Property Tax / Truth in Millage (TRIM) Notice gives property owners the opportunity to review their proposed property taxes prior to mailing tax bills in November.
This very important document relates to your proposed property value and taxes for the current year and includes:
- Market Value of your property, as determined by the Property Appraiser, as of January 1st
- Property tax exemptions applied to your property
- Tax rates and taxes proposed by your local taxing authorities
- Dates and times all taxing authorities hold hearings to adopt their tax rates and budgets
If you disagree with your property value or exemption status, we would like the opportunity to discuss it with you!
If you believe your proposed value is higher or lower than market value as of January 1st, we encourage you to speak to your area appraiser. Their contact information is printed on the TRIM Notice. Our goal is to ensure that your property is appraised equitably and accurately, and we are happy to speak with you about your value.
If you believe you are eligible for an exemption but do not see it listed on the Notice, our friendly Public Information Specialists can help you navigate the qualifications, answer questions and help you apply.
If you believe you have been incorrectly denied an exemption, please feel free to discuss this with our Exemption Specialists. They have in-depth knowledge of the requirements and can help decipher the information for you.
