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.
