HOW TO CHALLENGE THE APPRAISED VALUE OF YOUR HOME
Proposed tax notices were just sent out to Palm Beach County residents. The Clerk’s office will accept appeals for property tax appraisals through September 16.
You can challenge market value, classification or an exemption by petitioning the county’s Value Adjustment Board (VAB). Board Members are two county commissioners, one school board member, and two citizen members. They approve and hire special magistrates to settle disputes.
The VAB is not affiliated with the Tax Collector or Property Appraiser. Go to www.mypalmbeachclerk.com and use myVABsystem to file your petition online, schedule hearings and submit supporting materials, or call 561-355-6289 for more information. Forms can also be submitted in person or by mail. Filing fee is $15. To submit in person, go to the Clerk’s Governmental Center or branch locations. To submit by mail send to 301 North Olive Avenue, Room 203, West Palm Beach FL 33401.
