2011 Real Estate Tax Appeal Deadlines

Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Broward counties have all recently issued their annual Truth in Millage (“TRIM”) notices.  Property owners wishing to appeal the assessed valuations and tax liabilities reflected on their 2011 TRIM notices have a very limited time to do so.

If you feel that your assessment may be too high, the deadlines to appeal your property taxes are approaching. After the following deadlines, appeals for 2011 will not be permitted: 

  • September 16, 2011 – Palm Beach
  • September 19, 2011 – Broward
  • September 19, 2011 – Miami-Dade
