To maintain an acceptable quality of life in Columbia County, local governments need revenue. Your property taxes partially support public education, law enforcement, fire safety, street maintenance, park and recreation areas and other services.
The Property Appraiser’s Office does not determine your taxes. The various taxing authorities set the yearly tax, or millage rate. Columbia County taxing authorities include the city and county commissions, the school board, water management districts, the industrial development authority and the hospital authority. Once the tax rate is set, it is applied to your property value. Then, your property tax is computed.
The Property Appraiser’s office keeps all appraisals up-to-date and on permanent file. You have a right under Florida’s Public Records Law to inspect these records.
Please feel free to come by the office if I can be of assistance.
