West Palm Beach, Fla. – – Constitutional Tax Collector Anne M. Gannon announced today that property tax bills were mailed out, marking the start of the 2023 property tax season. This year, approximately 615,000 property tax bills are being distributed. More than $4 billion is expected to be collected this year to fund essential county public services, such as education, healthcare, fire rescue and libraries.
Tax payments are due by March 31, 2024, but Gannon reminds taxpayers to take advantage of several discounts for paying early. “Property owners can save up to 4% if they pay their taxes by November 30,” says Gannon. The discount drops to 3% in December, 2% in January and 1% in February. There is no discount if you wait and pay your taxes in March.
