The deadline for the 4 % discount on 2013 property tax payments is Monday, December 2, 2013*. Payments received in Gannon’s office by that date receive the 4 percent discount allowable by Florida law. November payments received after the deadline will be returned to the taxpayer and must be resubmitted. December payments receive a 3 % discount and must be received by Tuesday, December 31.
Gannon’s office mailed 686,556 property tax bills representing total tax revenue of $3.025 billion. Roughly 80 percent of all property tax payments are paid in November. This makes November the busiest month for Tax Collector offices. Gannon encourages property owners to pay online. “ePay is the best way to avoid busy offices and wait times,” said Gannon. “Our ePay option is available 24/7. It’s safe, secure, easy and fast.” 2013 tax bills may be viewed and printed online. Multiple payments are also accepted.
A complete list of all payment options is available on the Tax Collector’s website.
*Florida law extends discount payment deadlines falling on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday to the next working day.
