Real Estate Tax
Taxes on all real estate and other non-ad valorem assessments are billed, collected and distributed by the Tax Collector.
The Property Appraiser establishes the taxable value of real estate property.
Taxes are assessed by the Property Appraiser as of January 1 of each year and levied in Hillsborough County by the taxing authorities. Taxes are normally payable beginning November 1 of that year.
According to Florida Statute 197.122, all property owners have the responsibility to know the amount of tax due and to pay the taxes before April 1 of the following year.
