Executive Order 22-242




Governor Ron DeSantis Issues Executive Order 22-242 to Provide Property Tax Relief for Properties That Were Completely Destroyed and/or Otherwise Rendered Uninhabitable Due to Hurricane Ian

Our property tax dollars go to help pay for many services, including fire and rescue, law enforcement and infrastructure, such as roads and utilities. Our local governments’ resources have been significantly depleted as they have responded to needs and continue working towards recovery in the wake of Hurricane Ian. Your Tax Collector is very sensitive to the needs of citizens and property owners affected by the recent damage due to Hurricane Ian; however, state law still requires the tax collector to mail and collect 2022 property tax bills. Please read the important information below.

  • The 2022 tax bills represent taxes assessed as of January 1, 2022.
  • Property taxes are payable anytime between now and March 31, 2023. Please keep in mind there is no penalty for late payment until after March 31, 2023, and you do receive a discount if you pay early.
  • The Governor’s Executive Order 22-242 provides for an extension of the November 4% discount period until January 31, 2023, as well as an extension of the March 31, 2023 payment deadline until May 31, 2023 if your property has been completely destroyed and/or is otherwise rendered uninhabitable. Please sign the statement below and return to the Tax Collector’s Office if you believe your property qualifies for the extension.
