Hillsborough County Tax Collector’s Office Reminds Customers to Pay Property Taxes Early to Save
TAMPA, FL. – Nancy C. Millan, Tax Collector, announces that the 2021 property tax roll is officially open for online payment today, October 27.
Hillsborough County property owners will be able to pay by mail or by appointment at a branch starting Monday, November 1. “Property tax notices will be mailed on November 1, and we encourage Hillsborough County homeowners to take advantage of both online payment options and early payment discounts,” says Nancy Millan.
The earlier customers pay, the better the discount. If you pay before November 30, you get a 4% discount. Customers do not need to come to an office to make payments.
Taxpayers have simple and convenient online payment options by credit card or “electronic check,” which is a free electronic payment from your checking account. There are also alternative payment options.
Homeowners can make partial payments for their 2021 property taxes, but certain restrictions apply. Taxpayers also have the option of planning ahead and requesting the installment plan for tax season 2022, allowing them to pay their taxes in quarterly installments throughout the year while enjoying discounts.
If taxpayers choose to visit a branch to make a property tax payment, they will need to visit hillstax.org to register their spot online.
Hillsborough County has over 560,000 parcels of property totaling approximately $ 2.4 billion in revenue for the 2021 tax season. Through an efficient and cost-effective operation, the Collector’s Office has returned a total of
$ 22.4 million in unused fees to the County Commissioners Council and other county agencies this year. Millan says, “The excess of these funds is attributed to efficiency gains and cost savings based on the budget process established for many years. Since 1998, the Collector’s Office has refunded unused fees in excess of $ 334 million annually.
