The Property Appraiser's objective is to provide accurate and equitable assessments with unsurpassed customer service. It is the duty of the Property Appraiser to determine that your property is appraised correctly and that all exemptions and classifications are properly administered. The Property Appraiser does not control property values. They are determined by the rise and fall of the real estate market.
Please review your Notice of Proposed Tax (also known as a Truth in Millage or TRIM notice) as soon as you receive it, and contact us quickly to speak with a Deputy Appraiser if you disagree with your property value, classification, or exemption status so that we may assist you within the time frame allowed by law.
We desire a friendly and equitable resolution to any disagreements you may have with us. If we made a mistake, or if you can provide us with verifiable information that was previously unavailable to us that would justify a change, we would be happy to make any warranted changes as long as you provide this information within the legal time frame (Florida law prevents us from making informal changes after a certain deadline. More information below.)
If after meeting with a Deputy Appraiser and examining all of the relevant data you still disagree with the Property Appraiser's determination, you have a right to file a petition with the Value Adjustment Board (VAB). The petition must be filed on or before the deadline that appears each year on your TRIM notice. You may file an online petition with the Brevard County Clerk of Court or provide them with a printed copy.
