Pinellas County Property Appraiser Pam Dubov mail annual Notice of Proposed Property Taxes, or Truth In Millage (TRIM) Notices, to Pinellas property owners Friday, Aug. 22.
The notice is not a bill. The tax collector mails the bills Oct. 31.
The TRIM notice is a notification to property owners of the proposed value of their property, the proposed millage rates set by taxing authorities, whether an exemption is in place, and the proposed property taxes they will see on their property tax bill this year.
The mailing of this document marks the official time-period during which property owners have the opportunity to discuss, or even appeal, the value or exemption status of their property, as well as to offer input into the county or municipal budget hearings.
Mailed with the Notice is a TRIM Guide, a newsletter that explains each component of the notice and provides answers to frequently asked questions.
For more information about the TRIM Notice, or if you own property but do not receive the notice by the end of August, call the Pinellas County Property Appraiserís office at 727-464-3207 or visit at www.pcpao.org.
