Real estate taxes become delinquent each year on April 1st. Delinquent taxes must be paid by cash, cashier’s check, money order, or debit/credit card (convenience fees will apply). Payment amount is determined by the date payment is received in our office. Postmark does NOT apply. Florida Statute requires the Tax Collector to advertise the delinquent parcels in a local newspaper once a week for three consecutive weeks prior to the tax certificate sale. The advertisement shall specify the place, date and time of sale, the amount due on each parcel, the person in whose name the property is assessed and shall include no less than the legal description as shown on the tax roll.
