  • The 2017 Tax Roll

    A little over a month ago, I signed the 2017 preliminary tax roll for Orange County that has a total market value of $172.6 billion. That’s up from last year’s historic high of $159 billion. That’s an amazing amount of growth that we’ve witnessed in just one year’s time.

    This year's tax roll features $6.1 billion in residential market value growth, $3.1 billion in new construction, over 450,000 parcels, and more than 61,000 tangible personal property accounts.

    My office is responsible for not only maintaining the tax roll but inspecting thousands of parcels in the county, and ensuring that exemptions and classifications of property are just and correct. I also ensure that each of the county's 13 municipalities receives information from the tax roll to set their millage rates and budgets for the next fiscal year.

    I’m proud of the work that we do in our office and the expertise that we offer to our residents. To give you a peek into the hard work that we do, our office has successfully defended 99.5% of our valuations at the Value Adjustment Board (VAB). That gives us a top ranking in the state among our peers.*

    If you’d like more information on Orange County’s market value and the growth this county is experiencing, I implore you to register for the 2017 State of Orange County Real Estate that’s happening on August 24th from 5 pm - 8 pm. I’ll go into more detail about what’s driving growth in our county and what to look forward to in the future. I hope to see you there!

    Yours in service,

RICK SINGH REPORT

2017 Fireworks at the Fountain - Fourth of July


Orange County Property Appraiser Rick Singh and staff celebrated the 4th of July at Lake Eola for the 40th annual Fireworks at the Fountain. Rick and members of the OCPA team spoke with residents about services our office offers, such as homestead exemptions, outreach through satellite offices, and upcoming TRIM notices that all property owners will soon receive in their mailboxes.


Web Demo - Navigating the OCPA Website


The Orange County Property Appraiser's office hosted a free educational seminar on how to navigate the OCPA website. Participants received a comprehensive overview of the website's features, learned how to use the site's search options, and got an overview of the new beta map search option, and got to hear from Rick Singh and ask him questions about web site features, property values, exemptions and more.


Signing the 2017 Tax Roll


On July 1st, Rick Singh signed the 2017 preliminary tax roll with his leadership team present. For those who may be unaware, the tax roll is a breakdown of all property in the county that can be taxed. In June of this year, our office announced that Orange County reached a record market value of $172 billion. That means that OCPA is responsible for one of the largest tax rolls in Florida.


TRIM Notice / Satellite Offices


The 2017 TRIM (Truth-in-Millage) Notices will be mailed on Aug. 21, 2017. This is your notice of proposed property taxes based on the valuation of your property. The TRIM Notice is not a tax bill. You will receive a bill in November from the Tax Collector's Office. For more information on TRIM or for a listing of frequently asked questions, click here.
