2018 Proposed Property Tax (TRIM) Notice Confusion

The confusion lies at the bottom of the front page of the 2018 TRIM Notice, on the row entitled “TOTAL NON-AD VALOREM.” Taxpayers are seeing a large discrepancy between the amounts for 2017 and 2018. This is because the 2017 assessments are not included in the 2017 figure. They are included in the 2018 figure. To be clear, these assessments were paid in 2017 but were not on this year’s TRIM notice. Click here for further information.

What our customers say…

Theresa K.

I recently visited the Alachua County Tax Collector’s Office (SW location – just off of Archer Road). The staff including a new Tax Agent and her Director were all very professional and wonderful to deal with. Their efficient handling of my specific needs were very much appreciated!

I have been a patron of the Alachua County Tax Collector’s office, Downtown, for 11 and a half years. As part of my job as a courier, I have had to come in as often as twice a day (especially during tax season). I have been treated courteously and quickly every time I have been there. If I have ever had a problem, it was addressed immediately and always to my satisfaction. I would recommend all of the Agents at the Downtown Branch. I love them all!

Their ability to work effectively and smoothly was very much appreciated; So was their kindness and pleasant demeanor. All I can say is that I actually enjoyed an experience that usually ranges from dull to onerous.
