PETITION FOR REVIEW
OF MARKET/CLASSIFIED USE VALUE FOR 2016
A separate petition is required for each FOLIO number (each property) under appeal, unless part of a multiple filing
requiring the attachment of Form CLK/CT 408 (MD-486MU) or 411 (MD-486MU). Each petition must also be accompanied by the appropriate non-
refundable filing fee or it will be deemed invalid and rejected. Unless the petitioner is an eligible recipient of temporary public assistance under
Chapter 414, F.S., and submits a certificate issued by the Department of Children and Family Services reflecting such eligibility at the time of filing,
the petitioner must pay to the Clerk of the Value Adjustment Board (“VAB”) the related filing fee for each separate parcel of property filed.
The statutory deadline for the filing of this petition is on or before SEPTEMBER 19, 2016, or such other date as may be indicated in the Property
Appraiser’s notice of proposed property taxes. The filing of this petition does not prevent the taxpayer from paying the taxes on a timely basis
to obtain an early payment discount and to avoid the possible assessment of interest and penalties if the appeal is denied. Without such
payment, the early payment discount can be obtained and penalties and interest can be avoided only if the VAB grants tax relief to the
taxpayer by reducing the assessed value of the property under appeal. Petitions postmarked prior to but received after the statutory
deadline will be identified as “filed late”.
If agent other than a Florida attorney, C.P.A. or licensed real estate appraiser, broker or sales associate has been designated to file this petition and
represents owner, the owner must sign the petition or a written confirmation of such agency, signed by owner, must be attached to the petition.
$15.00 per folio number/property, including each back assessment. For back assessments attach form CLK/CT 532.
$ 5.00 per folio number/property for joint petitions filed by condominium, cooperative or homeowner associations, or multiple contiguous
parcels of undeveloped real property (attach form CLK/CT 411 MD-486MU).
(Make checks payable to Clerk of the VAB.)
NOTE: If you are an eligible recipient of temporary public assistance under Chapter 414 of the Florida Statutes, obtain and submit a copy of the
certificate issued by the Department of Children and Family Services at the time of filing for waiver of filing fees.
