My office had a meeting the other day and our guest speaker was Barika Williams from the Broward County Property Appraisals office.  She wanted to help us with our many questions regarding the appraisals and the information on the tax records.

Barika’s explanations on how the system works was very informative and helped us to understand better so we as consultants can pass this information on to our buyers and sellers. 

There is the “Trim Notice”  information that you should receive if you are a homeowner from the Appraisals office.  In this flyer you can get most of your questions answered and it explains the full tax notice line by line.

portability Tax is something you must apply.  Your taxes are not just automatically adjusted from one home to another.  Also homestead exemption is not just put on your taxes you must apply within a certain time period after you have closed on your home.  It does not transfer from one home to another. 

There are many ways you can save on your taxes.  The best way to get all your questions answered and to be saving as much money on your taxes you can is to go to their website.
