Value Adjustment Board
If you are unable to file your VAB petition by deadline, you may still file a "good cause" petition pursuant to Rule Chapter 12D-9.015(11), F.A.C. Please call the Clerk & Comptroller's Office at (561) 355-6289 if you have any questions or need assistance filing your petition.
The Value Adjustment Board (VAB) settles disputes over property tax valuation between a taxpayer and the Palm Beach County Property Appraiser. The Property Appraiser mails the Notice of Proposed Property Taxes and Proposed or Adopted Non-Ad Valorem Assessments (aka Truth in Millage [TRIM] Notice). This notice includes the property’s assessed and market value for the upcoming tax year. A taxpayer may file a petition with the VAB to challenge the Property Appraiser's assessment, classification or exemption status.
Once a VAB petition is filed, the taxpayer must pay at least 75% of the ad valorem taxes and 100% of the non-ad valorem assessments before April 1. If payment is not received by April 1, the VAB petition will automatically be denied.
The property tax notice is mailed by the Tax Collector on or about November 1. These taxes are collectible from November 1 through March 31. Click here to view a sample tax bill and explanation.
