Flood Zone Information Now Displays on Property Record Information pages

Our office has teamed up with the Sarasota County Government's Public Utilities department to make important flood zone information readily available to the public on our website.

Sarasota County residents can now view flood zone information for their property by using our Property Search tool. The flood zone information is displayed on each property record information page. Flood zone related questions should be directed to Sarasota County Government.

2017 Notice of Proposed Property Taxes (TRIM) Notices

The 2017 Notice of Proposed Property Taxes and Proposed or Adopted Non-Ad Valorem Assessments (TRIM Notices) have been mailed to Sarasota County property owners. You can view a copy of your TRIM Notice by going to our Property Search page and searching for your property.

Please review your TRIM Notice as soon as you receive it as it contains property value, exemption and proposed property tax information as well as the deadline to file Value Adjustment Board petitions.

The TRIM Supplement provides useful information on values, a guide to the TRIM Notice, and non-ad valorem assessment contacts for districts who use TRIM for assessment fee notifications.

We encourage you to contact us with questions you may have regarding the valuation of your property and exemption qualifications.  As a reminder, our office does not set the millage rates, adopt budgets or collect taxes. If your questions concern ad valorem or non-ad valorem fees please contact the appropriate taxing authority listed in the notice.
