Florida real estate taxes are paid in arrears. This means that the 2015 taxes are due in January of 2016. Discounts are available for payment as early as December 2015 and payments will be late after March 2016.

It’s also important to remember that the assessed property value reflects the value as of January 1, 2015. Therefore, whatever the value on your TRIM statement, the property value is likely higher than what’s reported the day you read it.
