Installment Plan Application

NOTICE AND APPLICATION FOR ALTERNATIVE PAYMENT OF 2023 PROPERTY TAXES FOR MANATEE COUNTY PROPERTY OWNERS

Please read the Instructions and installment schedule carefully before submitting the application below.


Section 197.222, Florida Statutes, allows a taxpayer to prepay property taxes by an installment payment method. A taxpayer who chooses to pay taxes by the installment method will make quarterly payments based on an estimated tax equal to the actual taxes levied on the property in the prior year. Under Florida law, your estimated taxes must be more than $100 for each tax notice to qualify. You confirm your participation in the plan when the tax collector receives and applies your first installment payment.


THE 2023 PAYMENT SCHEDULE SHALL BE AS FOLLOWS:

First Installment Payment:
One quarter of the total estimated taxes and assessments based on the previous year. Payment must be applied or postmarked by June 30, 2023 to receive a 6% discount. Payments applied or postmarked by July 31, 2023 will not receive a discount. A taxpayer must make the first installment payment in order to participate in this plan. If not paid, the account is removed from the installment plan, an annual tax bill will be sent in November, and reapplication is required by April 30 in order to participate in the installment plan the following year.

Second Installment Payment:
One quarter of the total estimated taxes and assessments based on the previous year discounted 4.5%. Payment must be applied or postmarked by September 30, 2023. If not paid, the amount is added to the next installment due in December and results in the loss of discount.

Third Installment Payment:
One quarter of the total estimated taxes and assessments plus one-half of any adjusted tax amount discounted 3%. Payment must be applied or postmarked by December 31, 2023 . If not paid, the amount is added to the next installment due in March and results in the loss of discount.

Fourth Installment Payment:
One quarter of the total estimated taxes and assessments plus one-half of any adjusted tax amount with no discount. Payment must be applied or postmarked by March 31, 2024. Unpaid installments are delinquent on April 1. Tax certificates will be issued on unpaid real estate taxes and tax warrants on unpaid tangible personal property.

NOTICE

Florida Law requires that your estimated taxes must be more than $100.00 per tax notice in order to participate in the Installment Payment Plan. If your estimated taxes for 2022 are $100.00 or less, you do not qualify for this plan.

The installment payment plan requires that the first installment be made no later than June 30th to receive a discount. Payments made after June 30th, but before July 31st, are not discounted. Failure to make the first payment will result in the cancellation of the installment payment plan for current and future tax years and the account will revert to an annual payment plan. An annual tax notice will be mailed on or around November 1. Tax payers must reapply by April 30 in order to participate in the installment payment plan for the next year.
