Florida Property Appraisers will send out their TRIM notices, or Notice of Proposed Property Taxes this month in August. This is a notice that advises all tax payers of the proposed assessment on their properties. It is important for the taxpayer to carefully review the TRIM notice & determine whether the assessment is fair and accurate, as the mailing of the notice commences a very short time period in which a tax appeal must be filed.

With over 30 years of experience we are the experts when it comes to corporate property tax. Gulfstream Tax Group files property tax appeals for property owners with corporate real estate located in Orlando, Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville, and the rest of Florida. We appear before the Valuation Adjustment Board (“VAB”) to lower each property’s Market Value, Assessed Value, and property tax.

Identifying Risk and Opportunity

Blindly filing a real estate appeal has its risk. Why bring attention to a property that is taxed fairly or favorable? Not only is it a waste of your time and money but could bring it to the attention to those that may want to increase it.

Our experts analyze and provide you target values and discuss with you the game plan of winning a protest. Informal Negotiation is the first step to the Appeal Process. If the informal negotiation does not persuade a jurisdiction to settle, an Administrative Formal Hearing is required. Success in both Informal Negotiations and Administrative Formal Hearings require relevant data and a compelling presentation to succeed. Having an established and respected relationship with the jurisdiction makes informal negotiations and administrative hearings more likely to succeed.
