Owners of homes, businesses, farms and vacant land will receive their TRIM notices next week. TRIM is an acronym for Truth in Millage, and the papers will show the tentative Fiscal Year 2024 ad valorem tax rates set by local governments and taxing agencies such as the School District, St. Johns River Water Management District and hospital districts. The pending amounts for special assessments for stormwater, solid-waste disposal, streetlights and other services will also appear on the notices. The Property Appraiser’s Office will send out almost 300,000 TRIM notices Aug. 21.
The TRIM notices also show the times, dates and locations of the public hearings on the adoption of the budgets and tax rates in September. The TRIM notices are not to be confused with the actual property-tax bills, which will be mailed at the end of October or early November.
