Back on May 26 we posted an article entitled Legislative change levels playing field to appeal Florida property tax.  This article was centered around Florida legislation that came out of the last session of Congress known as HB521.

TRIM notices are scheduled to be sent out to taxpayers August 1st.  For valuations that are appealed this year, the Assessor will now have the burden of proof. 

The Assessors feel this law will cost them lost revenue.  To reduce appeals, care should be taken to ensure valuations are correct before TRIM notices are released.
