Notice to Taxpayers on the 2014 Installment Payment Plan

 
The Office of the Broward County Tax Collector has been notified that the fourth installment 2014 property tax bill mailings sent out on Feb. 27th included a green return envelope with the New Jersey mailing address of a tax bill processing center used in previous years, instead of the current County tax bill processing center located in Hollywood, FL, as printed on the first three 2014 installment return envelopes. Please be advised that you may return your payment with this green envelope that includes the New Jersey address and your tax payment will be processed as usual, without delay. All tax payments that are post-marked by Tuesday, March 31st will meet the 2014 payment deadline. This only affects taxpayers who have chosen to pay their 2014 taxes through the installment payment plan.

Anyone wishing to send their payments directly to the Broward County Tax Collector’s Office may do so by sending the installment payment in a self-addressed envelope, not the green envelope provided in your tax bill, to the Broward County Tax Collector at:

Broward County Tax Collector
115 S. Andrews Avenue, Room A100
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301

Payments can also be made on our secure payment website www.Broward.county-taxes.com using e-check, credit, or debit card.

We apologize for any confusion caused by the fourth installment tax bill mailing. Please be assured that either green envelope provided with your tax bill postmarked by Tuesday, March 31st will be processed without delay, ensuring the timely processing of your 2014 tax payment. Please call 954-831-4000 for more information or if you have any questions.

Helpful Tourist Development Tax Information

Broward County’s Tourist Development Tax is a local sales tax of 5 percent, which is due on the total amount received for the rental of residential properties. The tax applies to residential rentals for periods of six months or less. Long term rentals are taxable for the first six months of continuous occupancy unless they are subject to a written lease for a period greater than six months. The tax should be collected from the tenant by the landlord and remitted to the Broward County Records Taxes and Treasury Division – Tourist Development Tax Section.

County Offers Convenient Way to Pay Property Taxes
- Parking lot kiosk offers "drive-through" service on March 31st -

County 2014 property taxes must be paid by March 31, 2015 to avoid delinquency. Residents can save time, avoid long lines and reduce parking congestion traditionally associated with making property tax payments by using the County's drive-through kiosk, located in the parking lot of the Governmental Center Annex, 115 S Andrews Ave., in Fort Lauderdale. The outdoor kiosk will be open from 10AM to 4PM on Tuesday, March 31, 2015. "This is our fourth tax season offering citizens this convenient service," said Tom Kennedy, Director of Broward County Records, Taxes and Treasury Division. "The kiosk offers an efficient, time-saving way for residents to pay, without having to get out of their car." To access the kiosk, customers should enter the parking lot from the Brickell Ave (west) side of the Governmental Center and follow the signs into the public parking lot. County staff wearing official shirts and badges will be on hand to collect payments.

In order for tax payments to be accepted at the outdoor kiosk, they must be:
  • Current 2014 tax payments only - no delinquent tax payments will be accepted.
  • Accompanied by original tax bill stub (which will be stamped "Received" by the collection agent).
  • Payment in full (no partial payments).
  • Payment by check only (personal or certified), no cash or credit card payments can be made at the kiosk. All checks must be in US Funds, issued by a US Bank Account.

Payments will be processed on the day they're received. Residents can visit our website to verify that their payment has posted, and to print a copy of their receipt by entering their property account number.

The Records, Taxes and Treasury Division will continue to accept property tax payments at their offices in the Governmental Center Annex, 115 S Andrews Ave., Suite A100, Fort Lauderdale, through March 31, 2015. Payments can also be made online, and at any Broward County branch of Wells Fargo through March 31, 2015.
