The Leon County Value Adjustment Board has concluded its business for 2014.  Magistrate recommendations were considered and adopted at the Board's January 6, 2015 final meeting.  Final decisions were mailed January 6 and the tax impact notice was published in the Tallahassee Democrat on January 21, 2015.


Paying Your Property Taxes if You File a Petition with the VAB:  If you do not pay the taxes in the month of November, the 4% discount can be allowed later when the VAB renders its final decision but ONLY IF the VAB rules in favor of the taxpayer.  Taxpayers whose tax liability is altered as a result of the Value Adjustment Board action shall have 30 days from the mailing of a corrected tax notice to pay taxes.  A 4% discount shall apply to such payments.  Thereafter, the regular discount periods shall be applicable.  If the VAB rules in favor of the Property Appraiser the taxpayer is not afforded the 4% discount if the tax payment is not made by November 30 (postmarks accepted).  Please also read the added notice provided by the Department of Revenue (linked here) relating to required tax payments before the tax delinquency date to avoid denial of your petition.  This information is pertinent in counties where the VAB receives large volumes of petitions and is unable to finish by April of next year.  This typically does not apply in Leon County.
