AD VALOREM TAX
In Florida, property taxes and real estate taxes are also known as ad valorem taxes. Ad valorem
means, "based on value". The greater the value, the higher the assessment. Taxes usually
increase along with the assessments, subject to certain exemptions.
Santa Rosa County property taxes provide the funds so local governments can provide needed
services--like educating our children and protecting us from crime. Without property taxes many
of the services provided by local government would not be available.
The property appraiser is not the person who determines the amount of taxes levied. Those who
are responsible are known as the taxing authorities, examples being the county commission,
school board, cities, fire departments and water management districts. The property appraiser's
responsibility is to determine market value of your property and to maintain equity within the tax
roll. The assessed value of your property is only one part of the equation.
